TNT’s “Rich & Shameless” second season will feature WWE Hall of Famer

TNT’s “Rich & Shameless” season two series premiere will be on Sunday, May 7. The new season will feature the scandal between Hulk Hogan and Gawker.

Hogan, (real name Terry Bollea), filed a lawsuit against Gawker back in 2013. Hogan had sued Gawker for parts of a secretly recorded sex tape from a few years prior being posted online. The tape also revealed racist comments Hogan made, thus causing a split between Hogan and WWE during that time. There even had been some that called for his WWE Hall of Fame to be revoked.

The lawsuit went to a two week jury trial, which ended in Hogan’s favor as Gawker was found guilty and liable. Gawker was ordered to pay Hogan over $120 million in damages.

Below are descriptions from the Rich & Shameless’ YouTube channel, followed by the trailer.
