The two-time Hall of Famer stood on the entrance ramp and opened the show with a short speech for the live crowd.
However, fellow legend Kurt Angle met The Hulkster backstage that night and revealed he told him he lost all feeling in his lower body following a recent back surgery.
But the 12-time world champion’s camp insists the 69-year-old is “doing well and is not paralysed”
Hogan’s rep told Entertainment Tonight: “Everything is OK with him. Hulk is someone with a lot of humour.”
Angle claimed the ex-WWE Champion needed a cane because he “can’t feel his lower body”.
The 1996 Olympic gold medalist said on The Kurt Angle Show: “Hogan had his back surgery again.
“He had the nerves cut from his lower body. He can’t feel his lower body. So [he] uses his cane to walk around.
“I thought he was using the cane because he had pain in his back. He doesn’t have any pain. He has nothing at all. He can’t feel anything.
“So now he can’t feel his legs. So he has to walk with a cane which is, you know, that’s pretty serious, man.
“I mean, I really feel for Hogan. He put his heart and soul into the business and [it] ate him up.
“I mean, if you’re gonna kick off the show, the 30th anniversary of Raw, [it] should be Hulk Hogan.
“He’s the name and face of the company. He’s the guy that revolutionised pro wrestling. I have so much respect for him.”
