Hulk Hogan will be touching down in London as part of the WrestleMania Revenge Tour, WWE has confirmed.

However, WWE failed to confirm whether we'd be seeing any leg drops or big boots when the Hall of Famer appears on the Smackdown taping at the O2 Arena on 20 May.

Hogan's last few appearances in the UK have been with TNA, with a rare WWE appearance in Great Britain coming on the back of hosting WrestleMania 30.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

The news was met with excitement by some of WWE's British stars, including Wade Barrett and new WWE Divas Champion, Paige.

Earlier this week, Paige expressed her desire to appear in the upcoming UK tour in an interview with The Independent, claiming it would be a career highlight.

“It’s a goal to get on the tour because it’s not guaranteed, but fingers crossed that I get on there," she said. "If I do it’ll be the best experience in my life."

Whether or not the 'Anti-Diva' joins Hogan on the tour, we're sure there will be enough action to keep the British WWE fans happy.
