Hulk Hogan is headed back to court. Just months after settling his suit against former friend Bubba the Love Sponge, the Hulk slapped the Laser Spine Institute of Tampa, Fla. With a $50 million lawsuit claiming that the performed unnecessary procedures that prematurely ended his career in the wrestling ring.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, filed papers with the Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Court that state “Bollea…missed out on multiple millions of dollars in opportunities to earn income within his profession due to disability because defendants continued to cause him to needlessly suffer severe back pain, leg pain and other related symptoms.”
Attorneys for Bollea say that he was urged by numerous spine surgeons to undergo a spinal operation but instead followed the advice of the LSI and underwent several “minimally invasive” laser treatments that only gave him temporary relief and ultimately only served to aggravate the problems. The center issued a statement confirming the law suit but refused to discuss details of the case.
