Ya’ Know Something Brother!
Brother, Brother, Brother let me tell you something. Hulk Hogan just give the final leg drop on Gawker and it all went down in a court room. The Florida jury told Gawker to spread it wide and pay Hulk Hogan his 115 million dollars for damages.
The damages will be spread between personal distress over his raunchy sex tape being leaked, via a hidden CCTV in the bedroom to Gawker. Then the rest of the money owed to Hulk Hogan will be made up from public damages caused by the video being online for everyone to see.
Keep in mind this sex tape was one of the reasons Hulk Hogan was FIRED from the WWE.
There was a lot of racist ranting throughout the video but in Hulk Hogan’s defense he said he was just playing the character we know as ‘Hulk Hogan’ and it wasn’t really ‘Terry Gene Bollea’.
In psychology there are legit reasons that one might play a character, as in Hogan’s case – ‘to feel more confident’. Not that he had anything not to feel confident about as he’s packing near 10 inches of meat downstairs. That is something no one ever expected, unless you had been in the locker room after a stressful wrestling match with Hulk Hogan.
Gawker plan to appeal the court case to refuse to pay out the money, so it will be interesting to see how much Hulk Hogan actually gets from Gawker. 115 million dollars is a lot of money and that would mean he earned more than the Kardashians did for their tape.
Will the WWE take Hulk Hogan back? We’ll have to wait and see how everything plays out but Hogan is surely a happy rich man!
