Hulk Hogan’s sex tape surfaces online


Hulk Hogan’s long-rumored sex tape has surfaced online in the form of a preview posted by Gawker after it was given a copy by an anonymous source. According to the site, the minute-and-a-half clip—which contained snippets that were edited together from a 30-minute recording—shows the WWE legend, real name Terry Bollea, about to do the deed with an brunette whose identity cannot be confirmed. But before the duo hits the mat, the ex-grappler’s cell phone goes off (the ringtone is daughter Brooke Hogan’s song “About Us”). Hogan checks it to make sure it’s not his son, Nick, who’s calling, which means the tape was probably recorded some time after the younger Hogan got out of jail in 2009 for a reckless driving accident that severely injured his best friend two years earlier. Hulk decides not to answer, and a brief montage of X-rated activity ensues. News of the grainy video’s existence was first reported last April when adult film honcho Steve Hirsch, CEO of Vivid Entertainment, said he had been approached by a third party about buying the home movie. An attorney for Hogan subsequently announced that Bollea was taking legal action to make sure no one profited off the tape, which he said was secretly recorded without his authorization.
