Hulk Hogan has his fans voicing their concerns after posting a handful of photos from the hospital. The 66-year-old former WWE star took to social media over the weekend to post the pictures.
“Getting ready for a little tune up,” the wrestling legend captioned the post. The photos show Hogan lying face up preparing to undergo what appears to be an MRI. Even during the procedure, Hogan donned his trademark bandana.
Hulk Hogan didn’t reveal what he was getting checked out at the doctor’s office. However, fans theorized that Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, was undergoing tests on his back. During his WWE career and since retirement, Hogan had dozens of surgeries on his back, Yahoo! reports.
“Another surgery big guy,” one user wrote. “I know that’s an MRI.” Another user chimed in writing, “It’s no wonder your back is a mess having carried professional wrestling as a whole on your shoulders for so many years.”
In addition to his Instagram post, Hogan also shared the photos on Twitter. However, he added another one not found on Instagram. The picture is the only one to offer a clear look at Hogan’s face. “I have to find a better way to spend my Sunday’s!” Hogan writes. “Don’t ya think! Brother! HH”
“Sending our prayers to you,” another user commented. “With all the years in sport of wrestling and grinding all that time and having to pay the price. Sending love to you.”
Hulk Hogan on the Coronavirus Pandemic
This isn’t the first time Hogan caused a stir while on social media in recent weeks. Earlier this year, Hogan shared his thoughts on the coronavirus pandemic.
‘In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship,” the passage reads. “God said, ‘you want to worship, athletes, I will shut down the stadiums. You want to worship musicians, I will shut down Civic Centers. I want to worship actors, I will shut down theaters. You want to worship money, I will shut down the economy and collapse the stock market. You don’t want to go to church and worship Me, I will make it where you can’t go to church” (sic).
