Toronto’s mayor often takes on the media, but on Friday he’ll have an even more intimidating opponent.

Rob Ford is set to arm wrestle Hulk Hogan at 10 a.m.

“Can’t wait! It’s going to be a lot of fun,” the mayor said. “I don’t know if I’m going to win the arm wrestle but we’ll see.”

Hogan, the legendary shirt-ripping wrestler, will be in town for Fan Expo, where he is set to hold an “uncensored” question-and-answer session on Friday evening.

News of the match was announced by Ford’s spokesman on Twitter earlier Thursday.

Fan Expo Canada runs Aug. 22 to Aug. 25 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
