Source: CNNSIHulk Hogan is back in WWE as the legendary wrestler was officially announced Friday as the host of WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans, Louisiana on Sunday, April 6. The six-time WWE Champion will make his long-awaited return to the company this Monday on Raw. He will also appear on WWE Raw Backstage Pass, which airs live on the WWE Network immediately following Raw. The Associated Press has published an article on the big news, which features quotes from Hogan as well as WWE executive and talent Paul "Triple H" Levesque.
"I definitely want to stay here in the WWE," Hogan said Friday. "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."
While there are no plans for the legendary grappler to compete at WrestleMania XXX, "he's in shape and could be ready to mix it up, if needed, at the Superdome."
"Right now, it's not in the plans," Hogan said. "But like they say in the WWE, never say never."
Hogan apparently trained this week at the WWE Performance Center as he posed for a snapshot with various trainers and personnel at the building while donning his trademark red and yellow "Hulkamania" wrestling attire.
"It's time for him to come home," remarked Levesque, who laid the groundwork for his return last year during a charity event encounter.
Though Hogan appeared for rival promotion TNA Wrestling during his lengthy absence, WWE never forgot him as he was frequently featured in material showcasing the company's great history.
"I don't think there's ever been a doubt that Hulk Hogan was, in some way, a WWE commodity," said Levesque.
