Hulk Hogan is to wrestle again.

The former WWE wrestler is coming out of retirement after signing a deal to collaborate with Total Nonstop Action (TNA) and can't wait to get back into action.

The 56-year-old starsaid: "I'm thrilled to be jumping back into the world of professional wrestling. My fans have been asking me to return to the business for many years on a full-time basis, but the timing or the opportunity has never been right until now."

TNA Wrestling president Dixie Carter added: "Hulk Hogan is one of the world's top pop culture icons and the biggest superstar in the history of professional wrestling. We are truly excited to welcome him into the TNA family."

Hulk - who recently released his autobiography 'My Life Outside The Ring' - last wrestled professionally in 2006 and has since gone through divorce from wife Linda.
