Having competed against other enormous men in the ring for so long, WWE legend Hulk Hogan has been in the pro wrestling business since the late 1970s.
In Sunday’s most recent episode of his podcast, Kurt Angle painted a bleak picture of Hogan’s condition.
Angle claimed that he spoke with Hogan on the 30th anniversary of WWE’s “Monday Night Raw” and that they both discussed their health. Angle, 54, underwent numerous neck operations as an Olympian and professional wrestler. Hogan, 69, has health problems as well.
Last week, Hogan made an appearance at the beginning of the program with Jimmy Hart, the “Mouth of the South,” and spoke to the Philadelphia audience before the broadcast began. He didn’t descend to the ring but seemed to move cautiously across the stage.

On “The Kurt Angle Podcast,” Angle discussed Hogan’s condition. The Olympic champion, who also appeared on the RAW special, revealed that Hogan underwent another back operation.
“[He] had his lower body’s nerves severed. His lower body is completely numb. He moved around with a cane. I assumed he was using the club due to back trouble. He is not in any pain. He is complete without. He lacks all sensation.

“So now he can’t feel his legs. So he has to walk with a cane which is, you know, that’s pretty serious, man. I feel for Hogan. He put his heart and soul into the business and it ate him up.”
Angle remarked that Hogan introducing the show was entertaining.
“He’s the guy that revolutionized pro wrestling. I have so much respect for him,” Angle added.
Fox News Digital contacted Hogan.
Hogan hasn’t performed in a while. In 2006 at SummerSlam, he made his final WWE appearance.
Hogan just shared a video of his car leaving his garage on Twitter.
