Hulk Hogan is on the mend, according to his rep.

The WWE legend’s health sparked serious concerns after fellow wrestler Kurt Angle said Hogan told him he had lost feeling in his lower body.

But Hogan’s rep denied the claim, insisting the Hall of Famer “is fine and not paralyzed” after back surgery.

“Everything is fine with him,” Hogan’s rep told Entertainment Tonight. “Hulk is someone with a lot of humor.”

Speaking on ‘The Kurt Angle Show’, the former Olympic champion said Hogan now relies on the aid of a cane to get around.

“Hogan had back surgery again,” he said during Sunday’s episode. “He had the nerves severed in his lower body. He doesn’t feel his lower body. So let’s use his cane to walk around. I thought he was using the cane because he had back pain. He has no pain. He has nothing at all. He can’t feel anything.

“So now he can’t feel his legs anymore. So he has to walk with a cane, which is, you know, it’s pretty serious, man,” he continued. “I really feel for Hogan. He put his heart and soul into the business and devoured it.

“I mean, if you’re gonna kick off the show, Raw’s 30th anniversary, [it] should be Hulk Hogan. He is the name and the face of the company. He’s the guy who revolutionized professional wrestling. I have so much respect for him,” he added.

Angle’s statement surprised fans who saw Hogan, 69, make a surprise appearance at RAW XXX in Philadelphia last week.

While he appeared to be healthy and in good spirits, Angle said he spoke to Hogan backstage and the show did not show the former wrestler’s actual condition.

The Post has reached out to Hogan’s representatives for further comment.
