Hulk Hogan returning to WWE

Hulk Hogan is returning to the WWE next week.

The 60-year-old star, who hasn't been on WWE television since December 2007, is set to make his re-debut on the flagship show 'Monday Night Raw' before appearing on 'WWE Raw Backstage Pass' on Monday (02.24.14), and will also host the special anniversary of 'WrestleMania 30' in New Orleans in April.

Confirming the news to WWE.com, the multi-time world champion, who first competed at the very first event in 1985, said: "Words cannot express how excited I am to be back in the WWE family. I only have one question for the WWE Universe: Whatcha you gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild as the host of 'WrestleMania 30'? (sic)"

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon added: "We are thrilled that Hulk Hogan has returned home to WWE. 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."

The legendary wrestler's return coincides with the launch of the WWE's new streaming network, which launches on the same day.

WWE Superstar Ryback recently said it "feels right" for Hulk to get back in the ring.

The 32-year-old professional wrestler - real name Ryan Reeves - previously said: "To have a guy like Hulk Hogan come back for 'WrestleMania 30' it just feels right. His impact on the WWE and the significance of his career in the WWE to where it is now, he played a big part of that. To have him back, and I don't know his physical condition or anything of that nature so I don't know what role he can play, but just to have someone like Hulk Hogan there in the building in New Orleans it just feels right. I'm hoping something can be done on that end."
