Wrestling icon Hulk Hogan has shared a video of him being baptized alongside his wife on social media.

Former wrestler Hulk Hogan has delighted his Hulkamaniac fans and Christians around the world after revealing he has been baptized at the age of 70.

Hogan - real name Terry Gene Bollea - shared the video to his Instagram page on Wednesday (December 20) with a sweet message about his religious journey.

“Total surrender and dedication to Jesus is the greatest day of my life. No worries, no hate, no judgment… only love,” he wrote in the caption.

The video showed him being dipped into a baptism pool by his pastor and his wife, Sky Daily, being baptized by him and his pastor as well.

The ceremony was held at the Indian Rocks Baptist Church in Florida.

The church shared the wrestler's post to its Instagram Story on Wednesday and wrote: "God is doing amazing things at Indian Rocks."

Hogan has been open about his faith on social media and earlier this year highlighted to his fans just how devoted he was to Christianity.
