Menfolk have loved to talk about the size of their manhood since the dawn of, well, man. But is it me, or is there something in the air that’s making this particular topic of convo pop up everywhere you look. Like…at GOP presidential debates.
And now Hulk Hogan, aka Terry Bollea, is right-hand-to-the-Bible, so-help-you-God, up on the stand in court discussing the dimensions of what resides in those tight yellow speedos. Holy, Hulkamania!
Court is now in session on Hulk’s $100 million invasion of privacy lawsuit against Gawker that stems from that one time in 2012 when the gossip outlet posted his sex tape to its site. Who was the lucky lady, you ask? Well, it was Hulk’s best friend’s wife—back in 2007 when he was still married to Linda. The BFF was none other than radio DJ Bubba the Love Sponge (his legal name), and it turns out Bubba gave Hulk permission to give his wife the old three-quarter nelson. Well let me tell you something, brother, Hulk did not know the encounter was being filmed and he surely didn’t give Gawker the go-ahead to broadcast it to the world.
Looking over the line of questioning from Gawker’s attorney, it seems the defense is trying to argue that Hulk used the tape as a promotional tool and joked about it during a number of press interviews he gave after it came to light. So then why is he suing? But Hulk countered that the experience “flipped his world upside down” and that he simply assumes the character of Hulk Hogan during interviews—a larger-than-life personality with tons of bravado.
During the trial’s second day, Gawker’s lawyer questioned Hulk about a 2006 interview he did with Bubba in which he bragged about his penis size.
Bubba: “I’ve seen it before. Hard, you’re probably 7 or 8 inches.”
Hulk: “Dude, I’ve got size 15 (shoes), I wear a size 15 ring … Figure it out,”
B: “So, Hogan, you’re claiming, you’re claiming to maybe have a 10-inch c–k?”
H: “I’m not claiming. Those are the facts, Jack.”
Which led to this fascinating exchange between Hulk and the defense.
So things are a bit uncomfortable for Hulk right now in every facet of his life, but he can always count on his old wrestling nemesis The Iron Sheik to have his back. Remember him?
This is what the Sheik had to say about this lawsuit:
“THE GAWKER YOU DUMB NO GOOD SON OF A B–CH YOU GET THE CHEAP HEAT YOU DON’T RESPECT THE PRIVACY YOU HAVE NO CLASS.”
