See Olympia Champion Who Has 8 Back Surgery

Coleman won eight consecutive Mr. Olympia titles before being dethroned in 2006. He stopped competing a few years later and soon began suffering from chronic injuries to hips — both of which have been replaced — and his lower back. It's Coleman's eighth surgery.

Coleman’s back surgeries could have put him out of commission and it seems as if the big man upstairs was really looking after the legend.

8x Mr. Olympia Ronnie has spoken at length a number of times about his surgery in prior social media.

The fitness world was in shock when it was revealed that the 54-year-old American, the face of bodybuilding and a multiple world champion, was told he may never walk again due to the raft of surgeries and his incessant training.

Coleman's journey from a simple, country upbringing spent fishing and playing various sports to his domination of the bodybuilding world and ultimately being left crippled and having to relearn how to walk every year after several spinal fusions, disc decompressions, and hip replacements.
