Newly-wed Hulk Hogan has checked into a Florida hospital to undergo back surgery, according to a U.K. report. The 57-year-old wrestling icon exchanged vows with Jennifer McDaniel last week at their home in Clearwater, Florida after a year-long engagement.
But rather than enjoy a long honeymoon, Hogan - real name Terry Bollea - entered a hospital near his home on Tuesday, December 21 for an operation on his back, reports Britain's Daily Mail Online. The procedure has reportedly been scheduled to repair an ongoing issue which has become progressively worse in recent months.
Hogan tweeted before wheeled into the OR, "Going for broke in six hours. Rolling all the marbles, I bet on me..I love all you maniacs!" US Magazine said the former fighter is doing well in recovery.
