Hulk Hogan is starring in new reality TV show 'TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp' to find the UK's next big wrestling star
Hulk Hogan is starring in a new reality TV show - to find the next big British wrestling star.
The grappling legend is a mentor on 'TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp' which will follow the company's search for a breakout star who can make it in the US.
The series will air in December and Dominic Wilkins - Acting Director of Challenge TV, who will air the series - can't wait to see Hogan put the hopefuls through their paces.
He said: "TNA Wrestling has a huge fan base in the UK and it's great to be able to commission exclusive original content which cements Challenge TV as the UK home for TNA Wrestling.
"This series will provide unmissable entertainment content which resonates with our viewers."
The six-part series will feature four of the best wrestlers Britain has to offer competing for a contract with 'TNA IMPACT Wrestling'.
Twins Hannah and Holly Blossom will be joined by Marty Scrull and Rockstar Spud as they seek to impress mentors Hogan - real name Terry Bollea - and British World of Sport legend Rollerball Rocco and TNA President Dixie Carter.
The winner will earn a place on the company's roster, joining the likes of Sting and former Olympic Gold medallist Kurt Angle on the UK's most-watched wrestling programme.
They will also feature on TNA's 'Road To Lockdown Tour' of the UK and Ireland in 2013, which culminates with a TV taping at Wembley Arena, London.
'TNA Wrestling British Boot Camp' marks the first non-game show commission from Challenge TV since their relaunch last year, and is the channel's first full commission with TNA Productions.
