HULK HOGAN shocked his Hulkamaniacs after posting a series of pictures from hospital.
The wrestling legend, now 66, was feet first laying on what appeared to be an MRI scanner.
The Hulkster is believed to be back in hospital to have yet more tests on a back that sustained a huge amount of punishment during a glittering career.
He has had to endure multiple surgeries while he was still active and since retiring, with procedures running into double digits.
Hulk wrote on social media: “I have to find a better way to spend my Sunday’s! Don’t ya think! Brother! HH.”
Messages from concerned fans poured in for the former WWE and WCW champion.
Adam wrote: “Thoughts are with you. It’s no wonder your back is a mess having carried professional wrestling as a whole on your shoulders for so many years.”
Vince Gagliardi added: “My gosh… feel better Hulkster. All those years entertaining us and now you’re paying the price.”
WWE superstar AJ Styles revealed to SunSport earlier this week that Hogan is on his ‘Mount Rushmore’ of wrestlers.
He said: “Man, this is tough. I mean, we’re talking about the guys who made the biggest difference, the reason why we are where we are in this business, right?
“I didn’t watch WWF at the time when I was a kid, but I watched the cartoon on Saturday mornings. So that’s how I knew who Hulk Hogan was.
“But then again, in Rocky III as well, Thunderlips, so I knew him from that but I didn’t watch the wrestling. So he surpassed that, bigger than wrestling, he was a movie star as well.”
Styles added Ric Flair, Andre the Giant and Lou Thesz to his list.
