Hulk Hogan - Bubba The Love Sponge Set To Absorb Judicial Punishment After Hulk Hogan Plans Sex Tape Lawsuit
He body slammed Andre The Giant, he beat the Ultimate Warrior, he even managed to win a title by finger poking Kevin Nash (people weren't so impressed with that one); now Hulk Hogan has another big fight on his hands - suing the man who leaked the now infamous sex tape featuring the decrepit wrestler.
As is now well known, the woman who Hogan somewhat awkwardly engages in intercourse with in the video has been named as Heather - ex-wife of the wrestler's presumably-now-former best friend, the toe-curlingly named Bubba the Love Sponge. Oh no, brother. It turns out it was Mr Sponge who leaked the tape, with TMZ reporting that as soon as the Hulkster left the room in the sex tape itself, he popped his head round the door and told the former Mrs Sponge "If we ever did want to retire, all we'd have to do is use this footage." We always thought "Mean" Gene Okerlund was a bit of a misnomer for Hulk's amiable interviewing buddy, the name "That right bugger" Bubba certainly seems right for Love Sponge though.
Anyway, the man with the 24-inch pythons (and the, erm, now very public grass snake) is going to sue his old pal for the damage caused by the tape, which so far seems to have amounted to the horrible trauma of appearing on every major American chat show going, thus rising Hogan's ailing profile significantly - the horror! We'd like to see them duke it out in the ring personally, though we'd be wary of seeing the famous Hogan leg drop after he gave the move a whole new meaning on the tape.
