In today’s WrestleTalk News, Hulk Hogan suing Gawker again, Chris Jericho teases leaving WWE and a possible buyer for TNA revealed…
Hulk Hogan Suing Gawker Again
We’ve got a massive update on who TNA’s potential buyer is coming up, but first: Hulk Hogan is suing Gawker again.
This all stems from Gawker leaking Hogan’s sex tape with Heather Clem, where – amongst other things – the Hulkster was recorded making racist remarks. Hogan sued Gawker for releasing the video, and ended up giving them a legal leg drop of doom. The courts ended up awarding him a massive $140 million.
The New York Post is now reporting that – just like any good wrestling feud – there is going to be a second match up. They say Hogan has filed a lawsuit in Florida which argues Gawker’s release of his sex tape meant his “legacy in entertainment was severely damaged (if not completely destroyed), and his global brand was forever tarnished,” and that he’s seeking an unspecified amount of money in damages.
Hogan vs Gawker I was a fascinating trial, which explored the semantics of what a fictional character actually is and how that relates to the public interest. Hopefully Hogan/Gawker II will be in a steel cage to intensify the feud further.
Chris Jericho leaving soon?
Following WWE’s Payback pay per view on Sunday, Chris Jericho took to THE TWITTER to tease another hiatus from the company. He said:
“Thanks @WWE…its been real. See you next time.”
Following his loss to Dean Ambrose at Payback, that would’ve been a logical way for Jericho to take another one of his breaks from wrestling. He has a pattern of about six months on and six months off to focus on other projects. But then he turned up on this week’s Raw, cruelly killing off fan-favourite potted plant Mitch by smashing it over Dean Ambrose’s head – which suggests their feud isn’t yet over. Mitch for Hall of Fame 2017! He also appeared on this week’s Smackdown.
Jericho has been known to troll the internet in the past, so this could just be his way of saying, ‘you stupid idiots’.
