If you think Hulk Hogan used to botch a lot in the ring then you've clearly not been aware of the nightmare he's having in real life at the moment, as the one time leader of WCW's New World Order finds himself struggling to take control of even his own privacy this month. We all now know that the Hulkster was distraught to find a tape of him getting the 1-2-3 on the wife of his pal Bubba The Love Sponge (we know, we know) leaked onto the internet, more so when it turned out that the person who distributed the tape was allegedly none other than Mr Sponge himself.
Now it seems that all the milk, vitamins and praying in the world isn't going to wash the sour taste out of Hogan's mouth, brother. The veteran wrestler is reportedly suing both his now former friend and the website who posted the footage, Gawker, for a whopping $100 million. That could go a long way to keeping Hogan's current wrestling promotion Total Non-Stop Action wrestling going, which is great news if you were ever a fan of wrestling has-beens Al Snow, Chavo Guerrero Jr and Billy Ray. Just us then?
"Mr. Hogan had a reasonable expectation of his privacy, just as all Americans have a reasonable expectation of their privacy in their bedrooms," Hogan's attorney Charles Harder said, according to the Mirror. He didn't then rip his shirt off, go to each corner of room and put his hand to ear to listen for the reaction. More's the pity.
