One Hundred and Fifteen MILLION! $115,000,000 ! What the Fuck!
By all means Hulk Hogan deserves some money, but $115 MILLION? Who does he think he is, a baseball player?
Hulk Hogan is 62 years old. Just how many more years was he going to be raking in money before his Hulkamaniacs decide that its becoming ridiculous for an old geezer to pull this wrestling shit off? How did they come up with $115 million that Hulk should be awarded on account of his career being ruined by a sex tape?
Just how much longer is he going to live anyway? All of his other steroid abusing wrestling pals from the old days have kicked the bucket. And I do mean pretty much all of them. Was he going to make another $115 million before he dies? I understand that “only” $55 million was awarded for economic harm, but was he going to make another $55 million?
The rest, $60 million, was awarded for emotional distress. Holy shit, $60 million for emotional distress.
Actually, if you look at it the other way around, as a punishment for Gawker, I’m ok with that. So take your money and run, Hulkster. But Holy Fuck on a Sunday!
