Hulk Hogan to host WrestleMania 30, returns to WWE

Veteran wrestler Hulk Hogan has returned to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) after a six-year absence, and is set to host its WrestleMania 30 wrestling event which will be held in New Orleans on April 6.

STAMFORD, Connecticut: Veteran wrestler Hulk Hogan has returned to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) after a six-year absence, and is set to host its WrestleMania 30 wrestling event which will be held in New Orleans on April 6.

Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Gene Bollea, began his career in the late 70s and shot to fame in the 80s, as part of the World Wrestling Federation which went on to become the WWE, but later left the organisation.

“It’s fitting to have him help us celebrate 30 years of WrestleMania,” said WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon in a media statement on Tuesday.

“Words cannot express how excited I am to be back in the WWE family,” said Hulk Hogan.

“I only have one question for the WWE Universe: whatcha gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild as the host of WrestleMania 30?”

While he appears to be enthusiastic about his return, it is still unclear what the 60-year-old wrestler’s role will be at WWE after WrestleMania 30.
