Former professional WWE wrestler and movie star Hulk Hogan has had a storied career.
While he has been in the spotlight for most of his adult life, he just recently made a life-changing public announcement.
And Hogan just declared that this is the “greatest day of my life.”
The former American pro-wrestling star announced on social media that he had given his life to Jesus Christ at 70 years old.
The main event
“Total surrender and dedication to Jesus is the greatest day of my life,” he posted to X, along with footage of the baptism. “No worries, no hate, no judgment… only love!”

Fox News reported that Hogan and his wife, Sky Daily Hogan, were baptized at the Indian Rocks Baptist Church in Florida.
Indian Rocks Baptist posted stories about the event on their Instagram: “God is doing amazing things at Indian Rocks.”
The video shows Hogan and his wife being fully submerged in a pool of water and then coming up smiling.
They both wore white shirts, and Hogan wore his signature headband and a gold cross necklace.
The baptism comes after the professional wrestler spoke in detail about his Christian faith earlier this year.
“I accepted Christ as my savior at 14 years old, and the training, prayers, and vitamins kept me in the game, but now that I am one with God, the main event theme of surrender, service, and love makes me the Real Main Event that can slam any giant of any size through the power of my Lord and Savior, and so it is, even now brother, AMEN!” Hogan posted on X in April.
Hogan has also been posting scriptures to his social media page and wears a T-shirt with a verse from the New Testament’s John 3:16 on it, which states: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
The Hulk is the latest celebrity to accept Christ
CBN Digital reported earlier this month that famed rapper and reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee also gave his life to Jesus Christ.
“What good will it be for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?” he said at the final show of his farewell tour at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico, quoting Mark 8:36.
“That is why, tonight, I recognize, and I am not ashamed to tell the whole world, that Jesus lives in me and that I will live for Him.”
The famed rapper told the wildly cheering audience he would be starting a new chapter and would now be going by Ramón Ayala, his birth name.
“All the tools that I have in my possession, such as music, social networks, platforms, a microphone — everything that Jesus gave me — is now for His kingdom,” Ayala said.
“Thank you very much, Puerto Rico, and I hope you walk with me in this new beginning.”
“To all the people who followed me, follow Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth, and the life,” he continued, referring to John 14:6. “Just like Jesus, with His mercy, allowed me to travel the world, in your mercy, Father, I hope You allow me to evangelize the world from Puerto Rico. Amen.”
