Hulk Hogan Opens Up About Gawker Suit: ‘It Was Much Bigger Than Me’


Hulk Hogan is opening up about his lawsuit against Gawker.

In an interview set to air this weekend on OBJECTified, hosted by TMZ’s Harvey Levin, the wrestling legend acknowledged that his legal victory over the now-shuttered website — which settled with him for more than $31 million — will be a defining part of his legacy.

“It was much bigger than me or much bigger than my career,” Hogan said. “This was something that and you know, I’ve said it before and I’m not joking around.”

In a portion of the interview not included in the footage above, Levin asked Hogan about his 2010 admission that he nearly committed suicide by putting a gun in his mouth.

“I got to a point where everything kind of hit me at the same time,” Hogan said. “The divorce, my whole world falling apart, both of the kids with Linda and that’s how I ended up playing with the gun.”

Watch above, via Fox News. The full interview airs this Sunday at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
