Hulk Hogan returns to WrestleMania

Alexa Bliss opened WrestleMania 35 on Sun., April 7 by revealing that as host, she could make moments just by snapping her fingers.

And when she did, Hulk Hogan appeared...

The Hall of Famer, who was just reinstated to WWE last year after being fired back in 2015 following the release of a sex tape on which he was recorded referring to himself as a racist, was greeted with a loud ovation from the sold out crowd at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. He delivered a short promo, including pretending to call the building the Silverdome as he accidentally did while opening WrestleMania 30 in the New Orleans Superdome.

Then he asked what we’d do when Hulkamania and WrestleMania ran wild on us (brothers), posed with Bliss and made way for Paul Heyman... and our opening match.
