Hulk Hogan has signed on to host NBC's upcoming remake of "American Gladiators."

Adding one more credit into his career resume, Hulk Hogan has signed on to host NBC's upcoming revival of "American Gladiators."

The semi-retired professional wrestler was at NBC's Burbank, CA offices last week to discuss and accept the hosting position, according to Television Week. The deal is still being finalized, but sources say both parties are committed.

"Hulk Hogan is an American icon," NBC Entertainment Executive Vice President Craig Plestis said in a statement. "For over twenty years he has been a symbol of strength and toughness in all facets of entertainment. His electrifying personality will no doubt inspire Herculean efforts from our everyday challengers. There is no one more qualified to host this program."

Just like the original "American Gladiators" franchise, which aired on syndication in the U.S. from 1989 to 1996, NBC's reinvention of the show will feature amateur male and female contenders pitted against gladiator professionals.

NBC plans to begin broadcasting new primetime episodes of "American Gladiators" sometime during midseason.
