Hulk Hogan Sex Tape: Wrestler Sues Gawker For 100 Million -- And He Wants the Tape

By Staff Reporter, Posted: 10/16/12 01:07PM EDT

Hulkmania is running wild after Gawker, the sometimes trashy, often smart news website, revealed to the world a 6-year-old sex tape featuring former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan and his best friend's wife. 

Hogan is suing Gawker for $100 million, claiming "severe and irreparable injury which cannot be adequately compensated by monetary damages". It's clear that Hogan is just embarassed, as the grainy, black and white video not only showed Hogan's boring sex life, but how freaky the 59-year-old former WWF and WCW (and nWo?) champion is: He didn't go behind his best friend's back to sleep with his girl -- he was granted permission by the friend.

Yuck, right?

Cameron Stracher, a lawyer for Gawker Media, told New York Magazine that Hogan and his lawyer have also filed a motion this morning for a preliminary injunction and a temporary restraining order, in hopes of having the tape taken down.  

In legal papers, obtained by TMZ.com, Hogan claims he "had a reasonable expectation of privacy in his consensual, intimate activities in a private bedroom and reasonably believed that his privacy was safe and protected". 

"There's no doubt that this tape is newsworthy and of interest to the public," Stracher responded to NYM. "Hulk's lawsuit is based on the premise that this is private and not of any public interest," he added. "Hulk is having sex with a married woman, in her house. What kind of expectation of privacy do you have in another person's house when you're having sex with their wife?" 

Named Terry Bollea in real life, Hogan has remained in the spotlight after his retirement from pro wrestling several years ago, first with a crappy reality TV show, then a string of media appearances. In his heyday, Hogan was the biggest wrestling star around, main-eventing in seven straight Wrestlemanias.
