The Hulk Hogan WWE return has been in the works since he agreed to come back in January. TMZ caught up with Hogan on Feb. 21 and not only confirmed that he was coming back but also learned he has been working out at the WWE Performance Center.

After that, the WWE finally gave up trying to hide it and sent out a press release to the media that announced what Hogan was coming back to do. In the press release, which Examiner.com received later in the day, the WWE said that Hulk Hogan would be the host of "Wrestlemania 30."

“We are thrilled that Hulk Hogan has returned home to WWE,” said WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon in the press release. “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.”

Hogan then went to Twitter to give his thoughts on his big return.

"Well I guess it's that time again, I hope they are ready, this is gonna be the best run ever,it's great to finally be home,WWE4LIFE.ThankuHH," Hogan wrote.

Hulk Hogan will make his official return to the WWE on "WWE Monday Night Raw" on Feb. 24, the same day that the WWE Network goes live. The thought is that he will be there to help push the event, and sure enough the press release said that he would be on the exclusive WWE Network "WWE Raw Backstage Pass" show that will air immediately following "Raw."

Now the question is what else the WWE has in store for Hulk Hogan. Rowdy Roddy Piper wants to be involved with "Wrestlemania 30" and has mentioned a live Piper's Pit with Hogan. There is also the chance Hogan could induct someone into the WWE Hall of Fame, with the top two choices being The Ultimate Warrior or Mr. T.
