WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan has returned to 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 this Monday on "Raw," which airs live at 8 pm ET on USA Network. He will also appear on "WWE Raw Backstage Pass," airing live on WWE Network on Monday night at 11:05 pm ET.

A larger-than-life icon, Hogan is one of the biggest names in WWE history. On January 23, 1984, "Hulkamania" was officially born when he defeated The Iron Sheik to become WWE Champion at Madison Square Garden. He headlined "WrestleMania III," where he successfully defended the WWE Championship against Andre The Giant in front of a record 93,173 fans at the Pontiac Silverdome. Hogan went on to win 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. His last WWE appearance was in December 2007, where he appeared at the 15th anniversary of "Monday Night Raw."

"We are thrilled that Hulk Hogan has returned home to WWE," said WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon. "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," said Hulk Hogan. "I only have one question for the WWE Universe: whatcha gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild as the host of WrestleMania 30?"

"WrestleMania 30" takes place on Sunday, April 6 from Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The event will be broadcast live on WWE Network.
