Wrestlemania 30 host Hulk Hogan kicked off Friday Night Smackdown, in his first appearance on the show in over a decade, to discuss with the WWE Universe how excited he is being a part of Sunday's pay-per-view 30 years after headlining the very first Wrestlemania at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Hogan teamed up with Hollywood star Mr. T against "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff that fateful March 31st night in 1985, pulling off the victory despite "Cowboy" Bob Orton's (WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton's father) interference trying to help Piper and Orndorff.

Hogan also discussed Andre The Giant's legacy that he left in sports entertainment, Hogan having headlined Wrestlemania III alongside the legendary behemoth at the Pontiac Silverdome in Detroit, MI., and how excited he was about the inaugural the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal set to take place Sunday night.

Cesaro and Swagger were squabbling after the match. forcing Real Americans manager Zeb Colter to pacify the situation before it got out of hand to end the show.
