WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan has returned to WWE (NYSE: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, Feb. 24 on Raw, which airs live at 8 p.m. EST on the USA Network. He will also appear on WWE Raw Backstage Pass, airing live on the WWE Network on Monday, Feb. 24 at 11:05 p.m. EST.

A larger-than-life icon, Hogan is one of the biggest names in WWE history.

On Jan. 23, 1984, Hulkamania was officially born when he defeated The Iron Sheik to become WWE Champion at Madison Square Garden in NYC. He headlined WrestleMania III, where he successfully defended the WWE title against Andre The Giant in front of a record 93,173 fans at the Pontiac Silverdome in Detroit.

Hogan won six WWE Championships, starred in movies, television shows and became an idol to a vast legion of fans he dubbed Hulkamaniacs. Hogan was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 by Hollywood legend Sylvester Stallone. Hogan portrayed wrestler Thunderlips in “Rocky III.” His last WWE appearance was in Dec. 2007, where he appeared at the 15th anniversary of Monday Night Raw.

“We are thrilled that Hulk Hogan has returned home to WWE,” WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon said in a release. “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.”

“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 gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild as the host of WrestleMania 30?”

WrestleMania 30 occurs Sunday, April 6 from Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Tickets are available through www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000. All tickets are subject to service charges and facility fees. The event will be broadcast live on WWE Network.
