Bang Showbiz recently spoke with Hulk Hogan about his lawsuit against the Laser Spine Institute, saying they left his body in a contorted state. Hogan compared the ordeal to being “twisted like The Exorcist”, and said the proposed Wrestlemania 25 match between him and John Cena was cancelled because of the surgeries. Here is an excerpt from the interview.
“The people who worked on my back, Laser Spine, said I didn’t need a fusion. So they cut on my back one time and I felt pretty good after a couple of weeks. I called (WWE owner) Vince McMahon and said, ‘Man I’m good to go, let’s do this deal.’ So we started planning, then suddenly I was like, ‘Ah, ah, my back!’ That put the deal on hold. Then they cut on me six more times and they kept cutting more bone away, until I had to have a spinal cord stimulator put in my back. The stimulator has wires that go up your back and stops the pain. They put that in my back because my body was twisting like ‘The Exorcist’. I couldn’t pull my head around front, my body was all contorted.”
As noted earlier, Hogan says the surgeries cost him a lucrative contract with WWE, and the rumored match with Cena.
