Hulk Hogan was one of the most popular and controversial wrestlers of any era. The 12-time world champion has written unforgettable pages of WWE history, as well as holding several records that speak volumes about his immense value.
Suffice it to say that he - after Bruno Sammartino - is the second all-time superstar in terms of total number of days as WWE Champion. 'The Immortal' has ended up at the center of some nasty episodes over the years, which have undermined his reputation and attracted a lot of criticism.
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer has undergone a ton of surgeries, 25 in the last decade alone. In 2020, the 68-year-old from Augusta underwent delicate therapy after being diagnosed with MRSA infection. Earlier this year, the Hulk was inducted into the Hall of Fame for the second time as a member of 'The nWo'
He also presented both nights of WrestleMania 37 with Titus O’Neil. Speaking in the latest edition of the 'Hollywood Raw' podcast, his daughter Brooke provided some updates on the conditions of the legendary Hogan.
Hulk Hogan has been training every day
“Hulk Hogan has had a myriad of surgeries over the years.
Despite his struggles, he always managed to do what he liked. Right now he feels great, just think that he trains two hours in the gym every single day” - Brooke revealed. The Hulk has had back, biceps, elbows, knees, hips and shoulder problems, just to name a few.
"We tried to count the operations he has undergone in the last decade, we are around 25" - Brooke confided. Hulk Hogan has undergone ten back surgeries from 2009 to the present. In an interview with TMZ dating back to 2020, 'The Hulkster' joked that he could still face the entire WWE roster despite his countless injuries.
During his exceptional career, Hogan won the Royal Rumble match in 1990 and 1991, making him the first wrestler ever to win two consecutive editions. Speaking on Hollywood Raw, Brooke said she stopped dating Bubba when she found out he was also dating fellow TNA star Velvet Sky.
“So we went on a couple of dates and I think he was still dating Velvet Sky, I’m not really sure. So I did not know that at the time, but I definitely did not get the… I think the vibes… I put two and two together and I was like, ‘Hmm, I’m just going to remove myself from the situation right now,’” Brooke said.
