Many wrestlers over the years develop various health problems. Some of the problems never go away. Even the best wrestlers that are extremely safe in the ring often don’t land moves properly. One badly performed move can cause a seriously bad injury.
Hulk Hogan has a career that spanned more than 20 years. He wrestled some of the best and toughest wrestlers of all time. Due to constantly fighting and using the leg drop, he developed problems in his back. He already had scoliosis which is a bad condition.
On the Stone Cold podcast, he spoke about being in pain all the time. "It is a constant, overriding pain," Hogan exasperated. "It is everywhere. It is just these sharp pains, where arthritis and inflammation is, it hits you pretty hard.
You have good days and bad days. It depends on if it is raining, if it is cold, if you have been drinking because that can dehydrate your joints, it is just a series of trying to do the best you can, take the edge off with fish oil, glucosamine but nothing takes the pain away”.
The stem therapy that he underwent gave him temporary relief. It appears that there is nothing that can help the old legend and he will have to live the rest of his life like this. That is the reason why he can’t wrestle anymore.
