The Hulkster has reportedly undergone multiple surgeries over the years. His daughter Brooke Hogan recently disclosed that the 68-year-old had been training for two hours every day. Last year, the WWE Legend underwent extensive physical therapy after he was diagnosed with an MRSA infection.
Speaking on the debut episode of his Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast, Ric Flair shared that he and Hulk Hogan have been keeping in touch every two weeks. The Nature Boy added that Hogan’s health is not good at the moment.
“He’s having some really bad health issues but he keeps up with me,” said Ric Flair. “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.” (H/T WrestlingNews.co)
Ric Flair recalls Hulk Hogan helping him pay the medical bills for his late son Reid Flair
Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan are regarded by many as two of the greatest ever in the history of professional wrestling. Both men were major stars in their time and they held multiple world championships across many different promotions.
During the podcast, Ric Flair recalled Hulk Hogan sending him money to pay the medical bills for his deceased 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,” said Flair. “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.”
