Hulk Hogan Speaks Out Following $140 Million Gawker Win

Hulk Hogan has spoken out following his headline-making legal win against Gawker media.
The former pro wrestler was  awarded $115 million in his sex tape case against the website, and an additional $25 million in punitive damages, and although Hogan has faced some seriously terrifying opponents in the ring, he confessed to the New York Post that Gawker founder Nick Denton"scared the hell out of me."





"Denton and I had a stare-down. He scared me staring at me, man. He just sat there staring. It was right after his cross-examination. He stood up and stared. It was like he was going to call me out at ‘Wrestlemania,' Yikes!"

Hogan revealed he was offered "a large amount of money'' to settle but decided against it because, "if I put my tail between my legs, if I take the money but don't tell the truth or I don't face [the situation], I'm not going to be able to live with myself. I knew how unhappy I would be. I told my wife, I said, ‘Jennifer, I just got to follow my heart,' " Hogan said.

"It's embarrassing, though, believe me," the wrestler said of the highly publicized trial. "After Gawker had posted the video, it was almost like when I lived in Minnesota and the sun went away and it was like seven months of being real cloudy when I lived in the Twin Cities."

Hogan continued to note that he'd run into kids who would say that they tried to download his wrestling videos but found his sex tape instead. "I dealt with so many horrible things, people in public asking me about the tape. I felt like I had, all of a sudden I had a heat lamp on me at all times.''
"All I did was write for 11 days affirmations: I am victorious. I am grateful. I am highly favored by God and His universe.''

-E!

Why engaging in it? Well, STerra you gave us half gist...
Was he involve in it or not? Did he do it with his wife or some person? This one that he's saying "i'm victorious bla bla bla
He may be victorious but another may not.

Because his best friend told him to do so as result of Hulk problems with his wife at the time. His best friend went behind his back to tape the whole thing.
