Hulk Hogan Files $50 Million Lawsuit, Backstage Morale At Geneiss & More

hulk-hogan

TMZ.com has an article about filing a $50 million lawsuit against the Laser Spine Institute in Florida. LSI performed several procedures on his back starting in 2009 to treat multiple lumbar spinal abnormalities including scoliosis and multiple bulging discs, but Hogan claims that the procedures actually made his back worse and says he was never informed that the laser treatment only provided temporary pain relief.

Hogan eventually underwent major back surgery with a different team of doctors and says he missed out on tens of millions of dollars in employment opportunities. If that’s not bad enough, Hogan says LSI used his name and image to promote their business without his permission.

– Samoa Joe will be hosting a seminar for the Ludus Wrestling School this Saturday (1/20) in Brooklyn, NY.

– Backstage at Sundays TNA pay-per-view from Orlando, morale among the locker room was high. Everybody felt like it was a solid show with a great main event and the roster feels like the company is moving in the right direction.

    Lol Hulk Hogan says a lot of things.

    • morrisonfanone

      And does a lot of stupid things.

  • Jeremy Sandoval

    Damn Hogan…. why are you always suing somebody? Well, if you do win that money, can you throw some of it on acting lessons for your daughter? I’m into TNA more than WWE, at the moment, but jesus christ she’s hard to watch. She always looks like she’s trying not to smile. Even when she’s acting sad! Thank God for DVR….

  • Aiii

    If this company kept us from seeing Hogan in the ring, I say we raise the 50 million dollars collectively as a thank you to this fine fine company.

  • AKslamma

    wow! he’s suing anybody for anything. dafuq? 10s of millions in employment opportunities? like what?!?

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    Is this dumbass trying to set a world record for number of lawsuits filed in one decade? Jesus fuck Hogan. Go away already.

    • The Guest

      Actually, he’s right to sue in this case. Using his name and image to promote their business without permission? How is that ok? Seriously?

      • morrisonfanone

        It’s not, but now he’s filed so many lawsuits, who knows if he’s even telling the truth anymore.

    I think I’ve actually lost track on the amount of times I’ve seen the head line “Hulk Hogan files a (insert amount of money here) lawsuit on (insert random person or company here)” on SEScoops, seriously Hogan has tried suing so many people now it’s laughable…xD

    • http://SEScoops.com/ siberian_skies

      Yep. He’s turned himself into a complete joke!

      • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

        Ikr!…next thing you know he’ll be suing someone for not holding the door open for him or something!…it’s actually pathetic!…xD

    • morrisonfanone

      He’s just another old person that had it all in WWE, now TNA isn’t paying him enough, and he has to sue to get money. That’s his poor choice.

      • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

        I heard he was getting paid loads in TNA, it’s the actual wrestlers who don’t get paid enough (I heard the Knockouts get paid like $600 per appearance or something)…but yeah I think it’s just a matter of greedyness (or he has the same problem as Ric Flair and just spends all of his cash)…=/

        • morrisonfanone

          Either way, he’s getting broke.

          • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

            that’s true lol…=P

  • wwetnadudez

    Lol @ H2 but as far as the PPV it delivered for what was expected, the card wasn’t all that great though we knew we would get really good matches which we did for the most part. Not saying they went in the right direction but they didn’t do bad, pretty much where they were.

  • Backstreet Bungalow

    The unflushable turd strikes again

  • Forceton Banfodder

    No Hogan, your continued presence in the ring made your back worse. Quit trying to profit off everyone else.

  • wpm131

    What about the millions of viewers tna loses every time hogan shows his face on tv? He better watch out they might sue him.

    He should hire David Otunga to represent him.

  • morrisonfanone

    Maybe he sued to help Brooke and Bully pay for their wedding. Either that or he’s greedy and needs money to cover all his purchases.

    A follow up on this story. According to TMZ – According to Hulk’s (legal) team, the contract outlined a blowout match
    between Hulk and Cena — a match that was supposed to be Hulk’s career
    ender — but thanks to the surgeries, it never happened.

    I’d like to know how this was possible since he endured these surgeries while he was contracted through Panda Energy (the parent company of TNA/Impact Wrestling).
