TMZ.COM is reporting that the basis of Hulk Hogan’s $50 million lawsuit against Laser Spine Institute of Florida is that the surgeries prevented him from wrestling against John Cena at WrestleMania and that’s how the figure was cooked up.
Hogan’s attorneys said that he had a “phase out contract” opportunity which included a match against John Cena which was supposed to wrap up his wrestling career. However, the multiple surgeries which were suggested by LSI halted everything.
The match and appearance opportunities before and after the event was worth $50 million according to Hogan’s contract claim.
There has been no response from Laser Spine Institute yet regarding the lawsuit.
