• Hulk Hogan Reaches Settlement In $110 Million Lawsuit

Bay News 9 is reporting that WWE Hall of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan has reached a confidential settlement in his $110 million lawsuit against Cox Radio, DJs Mike “Cowhead” Calta, Matt “Spiceboy” Loyd and a few other defendants.

Hogan claimed in the lawsuit that he was a victim of “radio wars” between Calta and Bubba Clem.

Calta leaked the video of Hogan sleeping with Bubba’s wife to Gawker back in 2012.

Matt Loyd admitted to stealing that video from Bubba’s studio and distributing it to various outlets.

Gawker invaded Hogan’s privacy by posting that video and Pinellas County jury ordered Gawker to pay $141 million in damages.

Gawker went bankrupt and settled with Hogan for $31 million.

The remainder of the balance, $110 million, was the amount Hogan was seeking from Cox Radio and the other defendants.

After battling in court for 4 years, they finally reached a settlement in private.

You can watch footage of Hogan answering the phone while getting a BJ during that video below:
