The lawsuit between Gawker and Hulk Hogan, over the publication of the now-infamous sex tape, has finally been settled for a sum believed to be around $31 million.
The long-running lawsuit between entertainment and gossip website Gawker and the former wrestler Hulk Hogan has finally been settled for a payout of $31 million, it has been reported.
Back in May this year, a jury in Florida awarded Hogan (whose real name is Terry Bollea) a $140.1 million sum after it concluded that Gawker’s publication of a sex tape of Bollea engaged in an extra-marital affair was not newsworthy.

Hulk Hogan has appeared on ‘Good Morning America’ to apologise and ask for forgiveness after he was caught on tape using racist language in an audio recording which was leaked last month. The former wrestler has denied being a racist but said that it would be "fair" to say he inherited a racial bias from his upbringing in Tampa.

It’s the end of an era for many who have been there from the beginning of WWE as one of its main stars, Hulk Hogan, has had his contract terminated. Hogan was “The Rock” of his generation, the people’s champion and the epitome of WWE for many years but that has all come to an abrupt, and unseemly, end.

The Hulkster says he’s already talked to Sylvester Stallone about playing ‘the most evil man in the world.’
The Expendables team could finally meet their match in the franchise’s fourth instalment, as WWE legend Hulk Hogan has claimed he’s in talks to play the film’s evil villain. Hulk made the announcement during a Q&A session at the Body Pro Expo in Birmingham, England, last week, telling the crowd he’d been discussing a possible role in the fourth movie with the franchise’s star and creator Sylvester Stallone.
Hulk Hogan could be making a return to movies in The Expendables 4
“I was talking on the phone with Sly last night about doing The Expendables 4,” Hogan told the audience. "We’re trying to figure out a way to maybe turn me into the most evil man in the world, so. You know, Stallone gave me my first break and he’s been a great friend for all these years. He's the exact same guy today that he was 30 years ago.”

Snoop Dog and Hulk Hogan teaming up to take down Curtis Axel is the best thing that no one asked for.
By this point in modern popular culture, one could assume that all the greatest combinations have already been discovered or made. We already know of all the simple pleasures like peanut butter and chocolate and puppies in funny costumes, so surely there isn't anything new that can come from pairing two usually unpaired things. 'Not so!' cried WWE, and thus the world was introduced to the concept of Hulk Hogan and Snoop Dog joining forces to beat up a professional wrestler.
In a recent episode of Wrestlemania, wrestler Curtis Axel was all set to begin the take-over movement of #Axelmania. That is, until Snoop Dog chose to promote the event, leading to a twitter exchange between the two, and Axel crashing the Snoopmania party. At this point, Snoop and Axel took some time to do the usual WWE thing and hurl PG13 abuse at one another. Until Snoop unveiled his secret weapon.

After a few direct to video movie appearances, Batista first properly hit the big screen in The Man with the Iron Fists alongside Russell Crowe.

The Ultimate Warrior, who passed away today, will be forever remembered by WWE fans for his legendary career
The passing of the Ultimate Warrior has come as a tragic and sudden shock to WWE fans past and present. The man who was born James Hellwig and legally changed his name to Warrior had, in the last four days, made a triumphant return to the wrestling spotlight, and taken his place among their Hall of Fame legends. Now his untimely passing has brought a tragic end to what should have been a celebration of the career of one of wrestling’s most iconic figures.
Any writing on the Ultimate Warrior this week was supposed to be concerning his return to the WWE fold and his induction into their Hall of Fame on Saturday. It was supposed to be on how last Sunday, he remerged to a reception worthy of a Hall of Famer, how on Monday he appeared on WWE Raw to don the mask and jacket and shake the ropes as the Ultimate Warrior once again. The speech he gave on Monday night has now become even more poignant, as he told fans, "every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life what makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper and something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalised. By the story tellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honour him and make the running the man did live forever.’' For his legions of fans, the Ultimate Warrior was one superstar who could never be forgotten.

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal's new movie 'Sex Tape' looks at the results of a raunchy home movie being released. These celebrities all have sex tapes, but are they quite as embarrassed?
If one of us regular folk filmed ourselves doing the nasty and then the tape was leaked, life as we know it would be over. Most of us can’t think of anything more mortifying than other people seeing us in the throes of lust, as Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal discover in their new movie ‘Sex Tape’.
These celebs, however, see ‘leaked’ sex tapes as a career tool and for most of them it’s not exactly been an embarrassment for the world to see them bumping uglies.
