The Splash: My Thoughts on the Hulk Hogan/Bubba Love thing?

Alright Splashers, I’m just going to let everyone know that this not be suitable for all ages. I’m also going to let you know I’m pulling no punches, so If you are a fan of Hulk Hogan (or Bubba "the Love Sponge" for that matter.) you might just want to pass this one up.
In The Bedroom
Let’s get down to the meat of the matter. First off, Hulk Hogan had sex with another man’s wife, and he himself was just recently married. Take the hidden camera off the plate, and it’s still a pretty ugly picture. To top that off, the other man was his best friend, who was in the other room, who obviously had no problem with the two having sex. There seems to be one question that no one has asked throughout all this: Did Hogan’s new wife know about this? And if not how does she feel about Hogan having sex with his best friend’s wife?
Hogan’s side of the Story
Soon after the video breaks, Hogan gets on any radio station from Alaska to Florida, screaming to the heavens that he knew nothing about the video, and that he has written off Bubba “The love Sponge” as his friend”. I guess he never saw the stills that were released to the internet several months earlier that TMZ also reported. Hmmm somebody was playing dumb, stupid and blind…
And let’s not forget, this isn’t Hogan’s first embarrassing moment in front of the camera. It was THOUGHT he flashed his “junk” during the Def Jam RAPSTAR commercial shooting. Hogan’s daughter, Brooke Hogan and manager Jimmy “Mouth of the South” were also in the commercial, which added to the controversy. Hogan even had to write a letter to clarify that he was wearing black underwear under his shorts. The fact that he flashed his own daughter was still in bad taste…but so wasn’t the video game, which crashed hard.
Getting back to the subject at hand, Hogan has filed a $100 million dollar lawsuit with gawker.com. The website that reportedly first posted the video of Hogan and Bubba love’s Wife. What I find interesting is that he didn’t go after Bubba and his wife first. Bubba was his best friend, according to Hogan, if what Hogan said is true, and he knew nothing about the tape, then that is truly an ultimate betrayal. So Why not go after him first? Why go after the website that obviously just posted what was given to them? That would have been my second target, if I was truly violated. Sure I would have had the website remove the video, but I’m going after the source!
Bubba’s Side of the Story
Bubba’s side well… isn’t much more different, it’s a bit nastier. He claims that Hogan knew about the camera from Jump Street, and had no problems with it. Bubba even went as far to say that Hogan could have leaked the video. However Bubba and his Wife publicly claimed that they have had made several sex tapes with other people and some of them happened to be celebrities. Now, if what Bubba has made several tapes, then Hogan has known about it, there is no 2 ways about it! When you are close friends with someone, you know all their habits. Hogan didn’t have sex with Bubba’s Wife just for the hell of it. And if you ask me…something just doesn’t smell right! And no I'm not referring to Mrs. Clem either!
What do I Think?
Hogan has not been in the best financial situation over the best couple of years. First he got a divorce two years ago, which literally cut his finances in half, not to mention losing a multi- million dollar home. Working for TNA and other commercials have given some equity, but not to the life-style he once had.
So do I think Hogan knew about the videos? You bet I do! Hogan knows a good scheme when he sees one, and what way to get financially comfortable again by suing somebody for $100 million dollars, he was most likely a part of! I think Bubba and Hulk pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes. They have been screaming at each other over twitter an over the radio, I’m willing to bet they really hate each other like Vince McMahon really hates money. I bet their really laughing over the whole thing, as we speak.
Let’s face it Hogan’s not looking for the full 100 Mil, he’s just looking for a quick quiet settlement, so he can pad his pockets (And most likely getting ready for a second divorce). Hell I wouldn’t be surprised if Hogan DOES use the footage after he retires to get into the porn business. Maybe him and Chyna can do a movie together, and call it “A Python in Chyna”? I would definitely pass on that one… Till next time splashers….See you when I see you -RickStarr
