WWE legend Ric Flair has revealed that Hulk Hogan is enduring a period of really ill health.
Hogan is now 68-years-old and it’s safe to say that he hasn’t taken the best care of his body over the years. It’s no surprise that, as he enters his elder years, he’s suffering adverse effects from his actions during his youth.
Ric Flair has been to see the fellow WWE great and is able to provide the inside track into what sort of condition Hogan is in right now. Unfortunately, it’s not good news for fans and admirers of the wrestling icon.
Flair is quoted by The Sun saying, “He’s having some really bad health issues but he keeps up with me.”
“We support each other, good and bad. When I was in the hospital he flew up that day like everybody else that came up to see me…”
“Hulk was gracious, Jimmy Hart was great. I don’t remember seeing them because I was in a coma but they made the effort to go.”
(Hogan once loaned Flair $14,000, and he got it to Flair quick.)
“Those are the kind of things that mean a lot.”
It goes without saying, but we wish Hogan the best and will keeping our fingers crossed that he’s able to recover from whatever he’s enduring right now and continue to enjoy his retirement.
He’s a fighter by nature, but age catches up with everyone…

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan is reportedly dealing with “really bad health issues” these days.
The debut episode of the “Wooooo Nation Uncensored” podcast from WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair featured a discussion on The Hulkster. Ric Flair talked about how they are close friends, and thanked Hulk Hogan for what he’s done for him and the family over the years.
The Nature Boy noted that he and Hogan talk every two weeks as they have a great relationship, adding that Hogan’s health is bad right now.
“He’s having some really bad health issues but he keeps up with me,” Flair said. “We support each other, good and bad. When I was in the hospital he flew up that day like everybody else that came up to see me… Hulk was gracious, Jimmy Hart was great. I don’t remember seeing them because I was in a coma but they made the effort to go. Those are the kind of things that mean a lot.”
Ric Flair recalled back when Hulk Hogan sent him money to help pay bills for his late son Reid Flair.
“Also, which I’ve said publicly when my son was going through all of the issues in the hospital, I couldn’t keep up with the rehab bills or the hospital bills because every time I gave [Reid] the responsibility of paying his own insurance, something would lapse like his phone bill,” Flair said. “Sometimes you had to teach him how to be responsible. I called [Hogan] one day and I said, ‘I need $14,000.’ He said, ‘Call this person’ and I had it in an hour. I’ve never forgotten it.”
There’s no word on what kind of health problems Hogan is dealing with right now, but daughter Brooke Hogan recently talked about how he’s had 25 surgeries across the past decade. Brooke did say Hulk is feeling well at the moment, and working out in the gym twice a day, with his last surgery helping out a lot. You can click here to read her comments.
