One of the world's best known wrestlers, Hulk Hogan, has made a surprising announcement about the next arena he wants to set foot in; the political one as Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's running mate.

Hogan, whose wrestling career ended after a video emerged of him in which he appeared to use a racial slur, said he would love to join the GOP front-runner as his running mate in the 2016 presidential polls.

Asked by TMZ which presidential candidate he would want to take on in the ring, Hogan, who found fame with WWE, said, "I don't want to be in the ring with any candidates, I want to be Trump's running mate."

"Did you hear that? vice president Hogan!" he said.

Hogan said he thinks America is ready for a Donald Trump-Hulk Hogan 2016 White House ticket.

The WWE scrubbed all mentions of its biggest star from its website in July after he allegedly made the racist rant.

In a statement, after the video became public, Hogan apologised.

If the partnership materialises, it will be the most politically incorrect political pairing ever -- a tag team of Donald Trump and Hogan.

Trump is no stranger to controversial comments himself.

The billionaire offended many Hispanics after declaring earlier this year that Mexico was importing drug dealers and rapists to the US.
