WWE superstar Roman Reigns appears to have endorsed the return of Hulk Hogan ahead of Wrestlemania XXX in New Orleans next month.
Hogan - real name Terry Gene Bollea - is an iconic figure in the professional wrestling world and his return ahead of next month's showpiece event in New Orleans has been greeted with unbridled enthusiasm by fans and competitors alike - with Reigns dubbing him a 'legend' and stressing the importance of him remaining in the company moving forward.
"He's such a big name, and he's a legend," he said of Hogan's return in an interview with PressofAtlanticCity.com that was quoted by WrestlingInc.com.
"He was a part of the process that laid down the foundation for what we have now. To be such a huge part of our history, it's important that he's a part of our present, and a part of our future."
Hogan has already made appearances on Raw as the clock counts down to Wrestlemania, with crowds showering the 60-year-old with the adulation one would expect of such a truly legendary sporting figure.
Hogan's presence inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on April 21 has only served to increase the excitement felt around the WWE Universe.
This year's event will see a number of great matches take place, including John Cena facing Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan going up against Triple H and Randy Orton set to go head-to-head with Batista (and possible even Bryan if he can win that first clash) in the keenly-anticipated main event.
WWE fans, how do you feel about Hogan's return? Are you looking forward to him hosting Wrestlemania? Would you like to see him given a more permanent role back in the WWE?
