It’ll be a Blue Christmas for newlywed wrestling icon Hulk Hogan.

Hogan has checked into a Florida hospital to undergo back surgery, Britain’s Daily Mail said Wednesday.

Hogan – real name Terry Bollea – entered a hospital near his home on Tuesday for an operation on his back. The procedure has reportedly been scheduled to repair an ongoing issue which has become progressively worse in recent months. In fact, the one-time WWE champ was sidelined and hospitalized with the same condition over the summer.

Hogan will likely remain hospitalized during the Christmas holiday, but may be home by New Year’s, sources say.

Just last week, Hulk, 57, exchanged vows with his much younger wife Jennifer McDaniel at the couple’s home in Clearwater, Florida, following a year-long engagement.
