Hulk Hogan returns 'home' to WWE

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Feb 23, 2014

Hulkamaniacs, your leader is coming home. Wrestler Hulk Hogan, 60, is returning to WWE after six years, and the first event he's scheduled to host is WrestleMania in New Orleans on April 6.

Hogan told the Associated Press, “I definitely want to stay here in the WWE,” reports People. “I just can’t see myself ever being anywhere else. This is home. It always has been home. In the twilight of my career, what a great way to be part of the final hurrah for Hulk Hogan and all the Hulkamaniacs.”

Featured on Monday night's "Raw" on the USA Network, Hogan will appear on WWE's new pay streaming service, "WWE Raw Backstage Pass," at 11:05 p.m. EST.

"Hulkamania was born in 1984 when he defeated the Iron Sheik to become WWE champion at Madison Square Garden. He won six WWE championships and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 by Sylvester Stallone," further reports People. "Hogan was the main draw for the first WrestleMania in 1985 and was a fixture for years in WWE’s signature event, facing everyone from Andre The Giant and Randy Savage to the Rock and, yes, company chairman Vince McMahon. He’s in shape and could be ready to mix it up, if needed, at the Superdome."
