Watch The Hulk Hogan Sextape Trial Live Streaming
Hulk Hogan is finally getting his chance to leg drop Gawker Media for publishing that sextape you probably regretted watching almost immediately. If he's suing the blog network for $100 million, can the rest of us get a payout for the pain and suffering and night terrors after watching a bloated American icon hump a woman half his age? Dear lord, that was awful.
"Three-and-a-half years ago, Gawker showed nine seconds of Hulk Hogan having sex with the wife of his best friend, Bubba the Love Sponge -- who actually made the 30-minute tape and appears in it himself," Gawker's defense said in a statement. "Hulk Hogan was more than willing to talk about his sex life -- including in two autobiographies, a reality TV series and Howard Stern's radio show -- until he didn't like what Gawker had to say. Now he wants $100 million as compensation. Compare that with the $5,000 settlement that Bubba paid Hulk for the actual taping."
Hogan's legal team responded by calling their arguments nothing more than distractions.
Day one of the trial kicks off in Tampa, Florida, today. Watch it live streaming in the player, below...
