The Hulk recently landed in the hospital because of his back, but hopefully the wrestler’s health problems won’t sideline him for long.
In a video posted to his Twitter account, Hulk Hogan confirmed that he suffered “a major spasm from my hip all the way up the middle of my back,” adding that it “just totally overwhelmed me.”
Hogan said his trip to the ER wasn’t surgery-related, and was hopeful that the physicians could “give me something to calm this down.”
His rep told CNN Tuesday, "He is there because of back spasms but will be fine." Hogan added in a video posted Tuesday morning that he had a "bunch of tests" lined up for the day, but his back is "feeling pretty good" - at the very least, "better than yesterday." (FYI, if you click the link to that video, you'll get an eyeful of what he calls his "potty chair." Don't say we didn't warn you.)
He also says that when he gets back on his feet, he's going to "get real dangerous." Again - don't say we didn't warn you.
