MANILA - Former "It's Showtime" host Eric "Eruption" Tai is working on a project with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), he revealed on Instagram on Tuesday.

"What a privilege," Tai, also a former rugby player for the local national team, wrote as the caption to a photo of him with WWE Asia Pacific general manager Chris Marsh.

He did not reveal any other details.

Some of his followers, however, speculated that the muscly ex-TV host could make an appearance at WWE LIVE Manila, an upcoming show at the Mall of Asia Arena featuring wrestling superstars like Roman Reigns, Big Show, AJ Styles, and Sasha Banks.

The event is scheduled on September 9.

The WWE last held a live event in the Philippines seven years ago. Prior to that, the entertainment company held a RAW live event at the Araneta Coliseum on February 2006.

A New Zealand native, Tai first shot to fame after becoming part of the mainstays of "It's Showtime." He left the noontime show early this year in a shuffle that also saw co-host Coleen Garcia depart. The two were replaced by Mariel Rodriguez and Amy Perez.
