Hulk Hogan burns hand, apologizes for posting graphic photos

TampaTelevision Industry

Hulk Hogan badly burned his hand on Sunday and he has the gory photos to prove it.

The former wrestler, 59, whose real name is Terry Gene Bollea, severely burned his hand after a radiator exploded in it, then promptly shared the photographic evidence of the grisly skin damage. Be warned, the images are extremely graphic.

"Doule OUCH," he wrote, after he badly hurt his hand, showing the blistery burns all over, later adding "Triple OUCH!" showing how the blister began to balloon as it filled with fluid.

Perhaps he's taken a page out of the Jesse James guide to talking about graphic injuries?

"Just had a radiator explode on my hand, OUCH. HH " he explained, then went on to post more pics of doctors working on repairing the skin.

"Would you like it rare?" he added, continuing to share more stomach-churning photos of the damaged digits while being treated in the emergency room at Tampa General Hospital in Florida, where he lives.

He equated the treatment to being "skinned" and "slimed like a cat."

But perhaps the Hulk realized that not everybody was a fan of the gruesome images as he got a bevy of negative responses from followers on Twitter.

"I apologize for posting my burned hand photos,with all the feedback I now realize I really should take a moment before I make a decision. HH" he wrote.

Alas, all the photos are still available online for your gross-out viewing pleasure. It's times like these that we're grateful his reality show "Hogan Knows Best" was canceled.
