According to a new message issued by Eric Bischoff on his official Twitter and Facebook pages, Hulk Hogan was scheduled to undergo surgery today to have a spinal cord stimulator surgically implanted. As a result, Bischoff said Hogan would be out of action for the next few weeks.

This would make Hogan unable to appear at tomorrow night’s live Impact in Orlando or the Bound for Glory PPV this Sunday in Daytona Beach, FL. We’ve heard rumblings that TNA could be working its audience about Hogan’s health for a big angle, but all signs point to that not being true.

Bischoff’s full message reads:

“At the airport in Cody heading to Orlando. Spoke to Hulk yesterday. He is on the surgery table as I post this getting the spinal cord stimulater surgically implanted. He will be down for a couple of weeks, but HOPEFULLY this is the solution! He deserves to be out of pain. Been too long. Get well quick buddy…we miss ya!”
