While he didn’t reveal exactly what was being looked at, he did write: “I have to find a better way to spend my Sundays! Don’t ya think! Brother!”

Fans theorised that Hogan - real name Terry Bollea - was having tests on his troublesome back.

Hogan has had dozens of surgeries on his back, both during his WWE career and after retirement.

The social media posts were flooded with hundreds of comments from fans.

“Thoughts are with you,” one social media user wrote.

“It's no wonder your back is a mess having carried professional wrestling as a whole on your shoulders for so many years.”

Another fan wrote: “My gosh... feel better Hulkster. All those years entertaining us and now you're paying the price.”

One of the most iconic wrestlers of all time, Hogan has suffered a multitude of back, hip, spine and knee injuries across his illustrious career.

Hulk Hogan and wife banned from AEW

The 66-year-old was still working with a number of professional wrestling organisations until recently.

However All Elite Wrestling boss Tony Khan said Hogan and ex-wife Linda were banned from the company last month.

Khan announced the ban in response to a controversial tweet from Linda about the protests and riots in America following the death of George Floyd.

“Watching the looting, it’s all afro Americans, not sure how robbing and stealing set the record straight but if they want to be heard they need to be civilised,” Linda tweeted.

Pro wrestler Prince Nana labelled Linda’s remarks “sickening”, while wrestler and commentator AJ Kirsch wrote: “@LindaHogan, you should just go ahead and delete your entire Twitter account, not just that one tweet. You know the one.”

Khan’s ban on Hulk Hogan is thought to related to racist remarks he was filmed making in 2015.

Linda and Hulk Hogan divorced in 2007 after the wrestling legend was accused of cheating.

“You have single-handedly ruined our 25-year marriage and our family,” Linda said.

“My trust, my love, my future, our future family with grandchildren, holidays, weddings, our kids’ lives, homes, their ability to trust, our poor animals, friends, neighbours, your career, finances, trademarks, retirement, your legacy, your reputation, your health, even your soul. You lost it all.

“You took me for granted and never appreciated me or our beautiful family … blaming me for your horrendous mistakes.

“Until you can really apologise to me and to our children I will never ever forgive you.”
