Clearwater, Florida - World Wrestling Federation (WWE) star Hulk Hogan has filed a lawsuit against the Florida-based Laser Spine Institute, saying the clinic did unnecessary surgeries that damaged his career.

The lawsuit seeks damages of $50m (almost half a billion rand).

The Tampa Bay Times reports that Hogan filed the lawsuit Monday. He filed under his real name, which is Terry Bollea.
