- WWE announced the following:

The red and yellow is back, brother.

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan has returned to WWE and will host WrestleMania 30 on Sunday, April 6, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Hogan will make his long-awaited return to WWE on Monday’s Raw. He will also appear on WWE Raw Backstage Pass, airing live on WWE Network immediately following Raw.

“We are thrilled that Hulk Hogan has returned home to WWE,” WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon said. “It’s fitting to have him help us celebrate 30 years of WrestleMania and usher in a new era with the launch of WWE Network.”

A larger-than-life icon, Hogan was regarded as the “Face of WWE” when Randy Orton was still in snakeskin diapers. The Hulkster’s rise to sports-entertainment immortality began on Jan. 23, 1984, when he defeated The Iron Sheik in Madison Square Garden to become WWE Champion. That victory began a pop culture phenomenon known as “Hulkamania” with Hogan bringing WWE to international prominence with appearances on MTV, his own animated series and a definitive WrestleMania III main event against Andre the Giant in front of a record 93, 173 fans in the Pontiac Silverdome.

The Hulkster went on to become a six-time WWE Champion, and a WrestleMania icon, battling everyone from The Rock to 2014 WWE Hall of Fame inductee The Ultimate Warrior on The Grandest Stage of Them All. In 2005, Hogan was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his “Rocky III” co-star Sylvester Stallone. His red and yellow boots have not touched a mat since December 2007, but that will change this Monday night.

“Words cannot express how excited I am to be back in the WWE family,” Hogan said. “I only have one question for the WWE Universe: Whatcha you gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild as the host of WrestleMania 30?”

  • MrDr3w

    I think Hulk Hogan, who BUILT the WWE, is a little different than Batista…

  • The Killswitch

    Thanks for pointing out the issue. It was actually happening to me too, but I wasn’t sure if the problem was isolated on my machine or if it was widespread. I’ll pass the info along.

  • Jeff N

    You have to love how WWE pretends that wrestlers who leave and go to TNA have just been sitting home collecting unemployment this whole time.

  • HR

    Honestly I am looking forward to it and I am sure you all will love it as well.

  • Sammy

    LOL The demise of the WWE continues…… Triple H becoming the opening act every Monday Night Raw, with his wife (puke) started it, to bringing back all these old timers…….. And you wonder why CM Punk is disgusted?

  • The Killswitch

    “His red and yellow boots have not touched a mat since December 2007.” Not quite.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I agree.
