The iconic Hulk Hogan has signed a deal with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, the second largest wrestling organization behind the WWE. Hogan's deal will bring him back to where he began, on a full-time basis.

Aside from a few sporadic appearances this decade, Hogan has been largely out of the wrestling spotlight. But that's not to say he's faded out of the pop-culture limelight. You might remember a little VH1 show called 'Hogan Knows Best,' which followed the trials and tribulations of Hogan juggling his marriage and raising two teenage children -- Nick and Brooke, with the latter starring in the spin-off 'Brooke Knows Best.'Hulk HoganHeads up, wrestling fans: Hulkamania is back.

Aside from a few sporadic appearances this decade, Hogan has been largely out of the wrestling spotlight. But that's not to say he's faded out of the pop-culture limelight. You might remember a little VH1 show called 'Hogan Knows Best,' which followed the trials and tribulations of Hogan juggling his marriage and raising two teenage children -- Nick and Brooke, with the latter starring in the spin-off 'Brooke Knows Best.'

That said, Hogan hasn't really had the best few years -- Nick was involved in a serious car crash, and his wife of 24 years, Linda, divorced him after an alleged affair. Returning to his roots in the ring could get the longtime champ another shot at his first love ... or at least, a new and steady paycheck.

Whether or not Hogan's career as a wrestler has the cachet it once did, he's well suited to playing either the good guy or the bad guy, so whatever TNA has in mind for him, he's sure to ease back in. Spike TV is the current home to TNA, with the flagship show 'TNA Impact' airing on Thursday nights as a two-hour segment. According to the TNA website, this Thursday's show promises to highlight Hogan's presence in the league, but no word yet on whether or not he'll make an appearance.
