It’s been almost six years since Hulk Hogan left the WWE. Now, one of the biggest stars in the history of the company is making his return.
The WWE has announced that Hogan will appear on the next edition of “Monday Night Raw.” The show will be one of the biggest in WWE history. Not only does it come one day after Elimination Chamber, which is the final Pay-Per-View before WrestleMania, but it marks the first day of the WWE Network.
Hogan’s “Raw” appearance is just a small part of his return. He’ll be on “WWE Raw Backstage Pass,” which will air on Monday on the WWE Network. Hogan will also be the host of WrestleMania 30. The last official WrestleMania host was The Rock in 2011.
It’s been speculated for some time that Hogan would come back to the WWE. He left TNA in late 2013, and rumors began to circulate that he would be on the Feb. 24 episode of “Raw.”
Before the WWE announcement, TMZ reported that Hogan had been working at the WWE Performance Center in Florida. It’s been speculated that Hogan’s health issues would prevent him from doing any wrestling. While he isn’t expected to have a match, the TMZ report states that Hogan “plans to get physical.”
Hogan was a part of the main event at the first ever WrestleMania when he teamed with Mr. T to defeat Roddy Piper and Paul Orndorff. His last WrestleMania match was in 2003 against Vince McMahon.
