Hulk Hogan plans to stage a high profile comeback at WrestleMania 32 next year.
The 61-year-old star, who previously admitted he would love another shot at the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) championship, claims CEO Vince McMahon has agreed to let him return to the the ring in Arlington, Texas, but admits it could be his "last hurrah."
Speaking at a press conference in Australia to promote the WWE's upcoming tour there in August, the Hall of Fame superstar, who briefly stepped into the ring to help his nWo teammates aid Sting in his losing match against Triple H at WrestleMania 31 in March, said: "Next year, WrestleMania is going to be where the Dallas Cowboys play at the AT&T stadium and next year they're going to try to break my indoor attendance record. So, I stopped Vince McMahon in the hallway and said, 'Let me tell you something brother, there's no way you're running WrestleMania next year without Hulk Hogan on the card. Whether it's for my last hurrah and it's my retirement match, whether it's for my next run or whether it's to just beat whoever's got the WWE title and become the champion again. If you guys are in that stadium next year, I'm going to be there.' And Vince McMahon shook my hand and said, 'I look forward to it.' "
The multi-time world champion, who has been plagued with back injuries in recent years, previously admitted he was eager to have one more big match.
He said: "If it happened I would want it to be the greatest match of all time, of course ... If it's the end of my career and a huge emotional send-off that would be great, or if it's the beginning of another huge run for Hulkamania and me chasing the dream of winning the WWE title, that would be brilliant. I'm thinking very positively about getting back in the ring."
