The Godfather operated on the hips: the situation

Speaking on the Midnight Hustle podcast, WWE legend The Godfather recalled his experience working with Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior and Sid Justice way back in 1992. Without going into details, Wright hinted that he never treated Hogan like a friend: "I was having a hard time divorcing my wife, so it's possible I wasn't 100% lucid while working.

Hogan, Warrior and Sid meant nothing to me. I never cared about Hulk Hogan, he wasn't my friend. He's not even today, I have to be honest. He's not the nice guy WWE has tried to portray over the years." Hogan defeated Sid Justice by disqualification in the main event of WrestleMania 8 in 1992.

"There weren't many credible heel characters at the time. That's why I was thrown among the dogs. However, that's how business works. I myself am a businessman. I can reveal that I intervened late because the WWE manager had not warned me to run into the ring at the right time."

The Godfather underwent surgery on his hips, announcing it on social media, saying that the surgery took place on Monday 19 December and that he is doing great, also posting a photo on the hospital bed all smiling despite is still attached to IVs and various cables to monitor the situation.

While the timing for his recovery is not known, the legend has in fact declared that he is fine, jokingly adding that morphine is not a bad drug, not losing his spirit. We are delighted to hear that all has gone well and of course all of us at World Wrestling join the fans of the Hall of Famer in wishing him a speedy recovery.

After briefly wrestling in Japan and other smaller independent promotions, Wright was hired by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) at the suggestion of his friend The Undertaker. He wrestled briefly under the name Sir Charles, a pun between his real name and the nickname of NBA basketball player Charles Barkley.

This character was quickly shelved in favor of the gimmick of Papa Shango, the evil master of voodoo.
