Hulk Hogan talks Gawker lawsuit

This past weekend, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan sat down with TMZ’s Harvey Levin as part of of the “OBJECTified” series on FOX News Channel. Hogan was asked specifically about his successful lawsuit against Gawker that made headlines worldwide.

“It was much bigger than me or much bigger than my career. This was something that and you know, I’ve said it before and I’m not joking around. You know as a wrestler, that was a great part of my life but now that I understand why I’m here – wrestling was just a setup. It was just a setup, a stepping stone for who I am and what I’m meant to do and be. No matter what happened in my career, this was so much bigger.”

The New Day goes sneaker shopping

Complex passed this along to Wrestleview.

Sneaker Shopping With The New Day

WWE superstars The New Day, made up of Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Xavier Woods, are the longest-reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE history, and they met up with Joe La Puma at Flight Club in New York City to talk about the sneakers they wear in the ring with special guest Wale.

In the episode, Kofi talks about the Nike LeBron sneakers that he wore the first time The New Day joined as a tag team. The guys also talk about why more wrestlers in the WWE are starting to wear sneakers in the ring and how Kofi helped pave the way for people to ditch their boots. Later in the episode, veteran wrestling fan, Wale joins the trio to talk about his “Intercontinental Champ” sneakers that he made with ASICS and the current crossover between wrestling and the sneakers community. In the end, all four of the guys go shopping, spending over $5,200 on Jordans, Air Maxes, and rare and expensive collaborations from Nike and Adidas.

  1. Hulk still rules! F ¥#K Gawker and I could give 2 shits about his “racist” comments that he made many years ago. WWE should feel embarrassed for letting this guy go, the very man who put them in the mainstream. Shows you how gay WWE has become, with all their PC bullshit.

  2. Well seeing as you consider “PC bullshit” to be “gay” and not giving “2 shits” about his (and here’s where quotes actually aren’t needed) racist comments – you just said a whole lot more about yourself than anyone or anything else. And it doesn’t reflect well.

  3. His lawsuit against Gawker was bigger than his career? Wrestling was a “stepping stone” for who he is and what he was meant to do & be? Aaaaaand what exactly is that? Who exactly is he & what is he doing now that’s bigger than his wrestling career? Am I the only one who thinks this all comes across as rambling jibberish and doesn’t really understand what he’s saying?

  4. Example of the the credibility of TMZ….. lookin for a ride on the pukester and Puke-a mania…the information on this article rates right up there with, with, nothing. Definitely not as interesting as sneaker shoppin with the cartoon boys….Now that’s really markin out !
