Hulk Hogan was awarded a settlement that could potentially end up paying him more than 115 million dollars. An estimated 55 million dollars will be awarded to Hulk Hogan for economic injuries. Another 60 million dollars is said to be awarded to Hulk Hogan for the emotional injuries in which he received from the media site Gawker when they posted a sex tape of Hulk Hogan with a friend’s wife.
In a weird twist to the sex tape scandal, it was recorded by radio shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge. Many people might remember Bubba the Love Sponge from 93.3 The Power Pig in Florida back in the 90s or when he made his switch to Tampa Bay’s 98 Rock. Bubba, the Love Sponge, has done outlandish things in the past. Things like gaining publicity from the notorious animal rights activist group PETA. Bubba, the Love Sponge, castrated a pig live on the radio in a parking lot and brought on some heavy fire from this group.
Apparently Bubba, the Love Sponge, was the one who recorded Hulk Hogan having sex with one of Hogan’s friend’s wife. I think the emotional embarrassment in this sex tape is that it was shortened to two minutes. If you ask me a hundred and fifteen million dollars for two minutes worth of sex is a pretty good deal.
