Iconic WWE wrestler Hulk Hogan, also known as Terry Gene Bollea, was baptized at the Indian Rocks Baptist Church in Florida at the age of 70, alongside his wife. 


The legendary wrestler shared the joyous occasion with fans by posting footage on his Instagram account on Wednesday.

Hogan expressed the significance of the event, saying, “Total surrender and dedication to Jesus is the greatest day of my life. No worries, no hate, no judgment… only love!” The video captures the touching moment when Hogan, donned in his trademark white bandana, matching T-shirt, and a silver cross necklace, assisted in baptizing his wife, Sky Daily Hogan, whom he married in September. Both emerged from the water with beaming smiles, symbolizing their newfound faith.

The Indian Rocks Baptist Church, where the ceremony took place, also shared the memorable event on their Instagram, declaring, “God is doing amazing things at Indian Rocks.”

This spiritual journey for Hogan became public knowledge in April when he shared on social media, “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!”

The wrestling legend’s post highlighted his lifelong connection with faith, beginning at a young age. Hogan acknowledged that his earlier commitment to Christ at the age of 14, combined with the discipline of training, prayers, and healthy living, played a vital role in his wrestling career. However, his recent declaration emphasizes the deeper spiritual connection he has discovered.

In the baptism video, Hogan is seen wearing his distinctive bandana, which has been a signature part of his wrestling persona, now in a symbolic white color. The choice of white, often associated with purity and new beginnings, reflects the transformative nature of Hogan’s spiritual journey.

Hogan’s words and actions during the ceremony reflect a profound sense of gratitude and contentment, emphasizing themes of love, acceptance, and the absence of judgment. The joyful occasion serves as a testament to the positive impact of faith on the wrestler’s life and the happiness he now shares with his wife.

This public declaration of faith is a notable and personal milestone for Hulk Hogan, marking a shift from his wrestling persona to a man who finds strength and purpose in his connection with Jesus. The Indian Rocks Baptist Church’s acknowledgment of “amazing things” happening further underscores the community’s support and celebration of Hogan’s spiritual journey.

As the wrestling icon embraces this new chapter in his life, fans and followers are witnessing a side of Hulk Hogan that goes beyond the ring—a man who has found profound joy and peace through his faith. 

Hogan’s message of love and surrender resonates not only with his devout fans but also with those who may be inspired by his transformative journey towards spiritual fulfillment.
