Hulk Hogan has shared with fans that he has now been baptized at the age of 70.

On Wednesday (December 20), the WWE legend and his wife, Sky Daily Hogan, were baptized at Indian Rocks Baptist Church in Florida.

While the Hall of Famer has many achievements in his career, such as slamming Andre the Giant at WrestleMania or helping lead the NWO, he revealed that the baptism was the "greatest day" of his life.

Sharing photos and videos of the ceremony on social media, Hogan wrote in the caption: "Total surrender and dedication to Jesus is the greatest day of my life. No worries, no hate, no judgment... only love!"

Hogan's slideshow included a clip of him and his wife submerging themselves in a pool of water and resurfacing with huge smiles on their faces.

They both donned white clothing, with the former pro wrestler rocking his signature bandana and a gold cross necklace. A picture included at the end of the post appeared to show the couple, plus others, bowing their heads in prayer.

Many people took to the comment section to send their praises to the couple, with one user writing: "So happy for you that you have found your way, Hulkster! Love you always!"

Another user quipped: "Whatcha gonna do when this holiness runs wild all over you brother!" while a third commented: "God bless you Hulk. You are saved by the grace [of] our beloved Lord Jesus."

A fourth added: "Love seeing this!! For all the Holier than thou folks warning the Hulkster about his past, leave that for God and remove the dust from your mirror."

The Indian Rocks Baptist Church also shared the Hogan Knows Best alum’s special moment on its Instagram Story, writing: "God is doing amazing things at Indian Rocks."

The baptism announcement came months after the six-time WWE champion took to X (formerly Twitter) to write about his religious journey.

"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!" he wrote.

Hogan also mentioned in an interview with TMZ back in 2009 that his faith kept him on the right path during his divorce from his ex-wife, Linda - with whom he shares his children, Brooke, 35, and Nick, 33.

"I've leaned on my religion," Hogan said. "I accepted Christ as my savior. He died on the cross and paid for my sins. I found some very good friends who told me about being positive and the power of positive thinking.

"I could have went the wrong way. I could have self-destructed, but I took the high road," he added.

Hulk and Sky dated for about one year before getting engaged in July.

The pair - who have a 25-year age gap - tied the knot at a small ceremony with close family and friends in Clearwater, Florida, in September.
