In recent months, multiple wrestling personnel have revealed that the two-time WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan is not doing great health-wise and his health is deteriorating.

The rivalry between The Iron Shiek and Hulk Hogan was a thing that revitalized the wrestling world in the 80s and the fans loved seeing the two behemoths fighting.

However, it looks like Shiek is mocking the Hulkster for using a walking cane.

“WHAT IF I BROKE HULK HOGANS LEG?” The Sheik wrote.

This tweet is clearly a dig on Hulk’s walking condition where Shiek casually means that if he breaks Hogan’s legs he won’t be able to walk.

Hulk Hogan beat The Iron Shiek to win his first WWE Championship

Maybe the reason why Shiek still harbors ill feelings towards the two-time Hall of Famer is because of how Hogan beat him for the WWE Championship in 1984 in Madison Square Garden.

The build-up to this match was insane, as Shiek was the dominant heel figure who was the company’s champion.

Eventually, Hogan stepped in as the American hero to save the day. The jaw-dropping part of the match was when Hogan broke through Shiek’s Camel Clutch submission, something which was never done.
