WHY HULK HOGAN IS SUING FOR $50 MILLION IN BACK SURGERY SUIT

TMZ.com featured more details on Hulk Hogan's lawsuit against the Laser Spine Institute of Florida, noting that when he was advised to do surgeries that he didn't need, it forced him to lose out on a WWE contract worth $50 million.

TMZ's report noted that the surgeries forced Hogan to miss out on a huge payday against John Cena in what would have been Hogan's retirement match.

That match was originally booked for Wrestlemania 25, until Hogan's back issues led to WWE going in another direction. At the time, PWInsider.com had reported there was talk of Cena vs. Hogan for that event.

Hogan is claiming damages for all the money he would have received under what was referred to as a "phase out" contract with WWE, where he would have retired and maintained a presence with the company.
