It's been a while since Tampa native Hulk Hogan has rumbled an arena, but the heavyweight is at it again.
His company, TNA Entertainment Impact Wrestling, is taking its show to the University of South Florida Sundome. Hulk plans to help emcee, but don't rule him out of the ring just yet.
"The best thing for me to do is to give advice, but if someone gets in my face, I'll give them a pretty good reaction," Hogan said Tuesday.
The Sundome showdown will take place late next month. Portions of the 3.5-hour show will air live on Spike TV.
"When it's a TV day, the dial really gets turned up. I know all the energy in the USF Sundome is really going to make my guys perform," Hogan said.
USF is home to Hulk. He enrolled there years ago, and Tuesday afternoon, the university welcomed his homecoming by giving him a custom Bulls Football jersey.
While the show is only one stop of a nationwide tour, Hulk hopes to eventually move the TNA headquarters out of Nashville and over to his hometown.
"Florida is of course the hotbed of wrestling, the hotbed being Tampa. I grew up watching wrestling. The greatest wrestlers in the world started right here. I'm really leaning heavy, I do have a little bit of stroke. I'm trying to get everything moved in this direction," he said.
The TNA Entertainment Impact Wrestling match will take the stage at USF's Sundome on May 23rd at 7pm. Tickets go on sale this Friday. For more information, visit www.ImpactWrestling.com or www.SundomeArena.com.
