10 Times Wrestlers Revealed A Little Too Much About Their Sex Lives
10. Hulk Hogan
The ‘Bollea v. Gawker’ was a landmark court case for celebrity privacy and rights. It caused the blog website Gawker, that centred its content on celebrities and the media industry, to declare themselves bankrupt and permanently close. A Florida jury in 2016 found that Gawker had breached Terry ‘Hulk Hogan’ Bollea’s privacy by posting a video online involving him, made without his consent, having sex with the wife of his former best friend and radio DJ Bubba the Love Sponge. Gawker were ordered to pay $141 million in damages, eventually settling for $31 million.
Comically bizarre details came out of the Hulkster’s testimony – from Hulk continuously trying to get the jury to differentiate between Terry Bollea, human being, and Hulk Hogan, the wrestler, to sentences like "Hulk mutters something in a growly sex voice" and "She resumes giving the former WWE heavyweight champion of the universe a blowjob" being read aloud in court to an entire cross examination/debate on Hogan’s genitals.
Gawker's attorneys played audio of Hogan on Bubba The Love Sponge's show, recorded years before the sex tape fiasco, saying that if Bubba’s fans supported his daughter Brooke's music career, he'd reveal the size of his penis (for some reason). Hogan implied on the radio it was enormous. "I wear a size-15 wedding ring. You figure it out," he said.
When questioned on this by Gawker’s lawyers though, The Immortal One claimed that was ‘Hulk Hogan’ who said that, not Terry Bollea. Terry, you see, apparently has a rather modestly sized package. Amazingly, he stated in court, "I do not have a 10-inch penis. I do not, seriously. Terry Bollea’s penis is not 10 inches."
