WWE star Kurt Angle has revealed that wrestling legend Hulk Hogan can no longer “feel his legs” after undergoing back surgery.
Speaking on his podcast, “The Kurt Angle Podcast,” he revealed that Hogan has suffered devastating complications from the surgery.
The two legendary wrestlers have been battling health problems caused by their years in the ring.
54-year-old Angle has had several neck surgeries while Hogan, 69, has been dealing with multiple issues.
Angle said after the most recent surgery, Hulk can no longer feel his lower body.
“Hogan had his back surgery again,” Angle said of his friend.
“He had the nerves cut from his lower body.
“He can’t feel his lower body, so he has to use his cane to walk around.
“I thought he was using the cane because he has pain in his back.
“He doesn’t have any pain. He has nothing at all.
“He can’t feel anything. So now he can’t feel his legs, so he has to walk with a cane.
“That’s pretty serious, man,” he said.
“I mean, I really feel for Hogan.
“He put his heart and soul into the business and it ate him up.”

A representative for Hogan somewhat refuted a few of Angle’s claims, however, telling Entertainment Tonight that the professional wrestler and reality TV star is “doing well and is not paralyzed.”
“Everything is OK with him.
“Hulk is someone with a lot of humor.”
