WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan took to Instagram this weekend to post a new photo, showing that he had slimmed down to 275. The former WWE and WCW World Heavyweight Champion wrote, “Back to my 9th grade weight 275lbs brother,” which is a few pounds down from 302 lbs he was often billed as during his historic pro wrestling career. The photo comes days after Ric Flair stated on his podcast that “The Hulkster” was dealing with some serious health issues, though “The Nature Boy” declined to go into specific details.
“He’s having some really bad health issues but he keeps up with me. We support each other, good and bad. When I was in the hospital he flew up that day like everybody else that came up to see me…Hulk was gracious, Jimmy Hart was great. I don’t remember seeing them because I was in a coma but they made the effort to go. Those are the kind of things that mean a lot,” Flair said.
Hogan’s daughter Brooke was on Hollywood Raw last month and stated Hogan had recently undergone his 25th surgery in the past decade. He hasn’t appeared on WWE television since WrestleMania 37 back in April, where he and Titus O’Neil served as the hosts for the two-night event.
“We counted how many surgeries he’s had in the last 10 years and I think we’re at 25,” Hogan said. “So he’s had both shoulders scoped and he had his whole bicep and everything tied up in his shoulder last year. That was a disaster, and he got MRSA, so that was like a big thing and we had to go back in and undo it and that was a ton of physical therapy. He’s had both of his knees replaced, multiple times, I think twice on both. He’s had his hips done. He’s had his elbows scoped.”
“So yeah, he’s had so many surgeries. He’s done a ton, but this last one that he just had finally was like the winning ticket, so right now he’s feeling great. He’s working out two hours in the gym every day. He’s still chugging along,” Hogan said.
Stay tuned for more updates on Hogan as they become available. WWE returns to pay-per-view tonight with the Survivor Series event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
