No, not in the ring. 

This is his back. He just had his 10th surgery on it. 

 

 

He's been sliced and diced more times than a bad guy in a 'Wolverine' movie ... and now, Hulk Hogan is showing the world his battle scars from his 10 surgeries!!

"10 surgeries you can hang a MAC truck from my back and I’ll still take the whole WWE roster on brother," the 66-year-old said.

He's also showing off the "Immortal" tattoo he got around 2011.

Hulk's back issues have been well documented -- he started going under the knife back in 2009 after suffering extreme pain from all those years in the ring.

"I've had 17 surgeries over the last 10 years," Hogan said ... "My knees are fake, hips are fake, back is full of metal and part of my face is full of metal."

"I didn't get the memo about the fake wrestling,:" Hogan joked ... noting the physical punishment is VERY real.

Hogan even showed off teethmarks in his finger -- the result of a wrestling match from decades ago.

Hogan's most recent procedure took place at the end of 2019 ... and despite being told he would likely be out of the gym for 4 to 6 months, Hogan was able to lift again after 7 weeks!

Guy's a beast.  For someone his size and years in the biz, he looks pretty good all things considered.

Just came to say this. Had a super light schedule during his first run. A few days a month. Didn't do a lot of bumping. Just crazy. Of course everyone else from back then is either dead or moves like frozen molasses.

The leg drops off the ropes are what broke Matt Hardy too. Dunno how Psicosis got away with it.

Half his lingering injuries are from the body slam he gave Andre in front of 93000 fans at WrestleMania 3 brother.

Understandable, brother...Andre weighed 795 lbs at the time and had never been bodyslammed by anyone before the 100,000 fans got to witness Hulkster do it.  Andre died the next day and the Hulkster tore every muscle in his body.  Poor Hulkster started his career at 7'2" and is now 5'4 1/2" due to spinal compression. I'm just glad he's got that Metallica gig to fall back on.

When was his schedule limited other than during his wcw days?

His first title run seemed super light because he was actually in New Japan.

You should look up his New Japan matches. Much different wrestler compared to his WWF work.

The only thing Hulk hates worse than back problems is joggers.
