    Why is everyone buying this hulk bullshit? Hulk is one of the greediest people I have ever read about? When on Stern every conversation revolved around money. And bubba loved this guy. We're supposed to believe this wasn't a set up? Guy looking for giant pay day (his own words) hits $115,000,000 settlement. Please. Set up all the way

    "I'm not saying i deserve any of that money, Robin, but they did play tape of my show in the courtroom. That's my content Robin. And then you have sirius, and all these knew listeners at the trial i brought to the Sirius family. And of course they fuck me over too, I'm not going to say anything else about that.

    But thats OK Robin, i thought i was doing the trial a nice thing by providing that tape of my show to them. I was america's judge i wanted to help. Is it so much to expect something in return? To be compensated for my work? ........ Ugh i am so tired. Is it time to leave yet Robin? .... Robin? "

    "Let's say he gets $115 million dollars and that stood. The attorneys get 40 percent off the top and then he also has to pay out the cost of the litigation, which means not the attorneys' hourly fees, but all the cost of the investigators, experts, witnesses. So you can assume in a case this big that the cost of the attorneys is going to be $1 million, and their paralegals and research and transportation and all the cost that will go along with it," Slaten explains.

    "And then there's taxes. The IRS treats personal injury awards like this differently depending on the character of the claim. If you are being compensated for a physical injury like broken bones, you can't eat, nausea, physical injuries—those are not taxable. If it's for lost wages then, yes, it's taxable as if that money was wages.

    "If it's purely an emotional injury that does not have a physical component to it, then that is taxable—the government gets like half of that portion that is purely emotional. Just like Erin Andrews, Hulk will have tax attorneys working hard on this and they will make the argument to the IRS that he suffered physical manifestations of the emotional injury—that he couldn't sleep, he is having nightmares, he is suffering PTSD, erectile dysfunction, he can't have appropriate relationships, sweats, all the things he could possibly have."

    So with all that said, we're looking at roughly $46 million in attorney fees, another $2 million in litigation fees, and assuming the remainder $67 million is taxable (which means half is getting cut), Hogan is left with—drum roll, please—$30-40 million. And yes, that is still a chunk of change, but definitely not $115 million.

    Then again, there are the punitive damages, which Slaten couldn't even begin to ball park. "It could be anything. God knows what it will be. I couldn't even start to speculate on that. Frankly I'm shocked at the $115 million dollar compensatory verdict for showing a video for nine seconds."

    However, there's a big chance Gawker is going to appeal, which then throws another monetary curve ball into the mix.

    "This is a very large verdict and it's going to have to be appealed," Slaten tells us. "In this case, Gawker is going to appeal because Hulk doesn't want to appeal it, he's thrilled he got more than he was asking for—so, Gawker is going to appeal and they will have to put up a bond for $50 million, in case they lose and that money is there for Bollea."

    He continues, "That is one of the most difficult things in a lawsuit. You can win a judgment, but that doesn't mean the money just automatically flows into your bank account...He will not see the money for a while—even years."

    Additionally, "an Appeals court could easily decide the jury was wrong and cut the award in half. If they felt that no reasonable juror should have ruled that way. Cases get overturned on appeal all the time," Slaten tells us, explaining that they could end up just settling for the $50 million instead.

    "And if Hulk and the attorneys are OK with that, the attorneys are walking away with $20 million-plus and Hulk gets $30 million, then maybe they would do it. I don't know. It would depend on what the attorneys think is how viable the claim on appeal is."

    Regardless, the large judgment raised a lot of eyebrows today, especially coming after the $55 million awarded to Andrews in her Peeping Tom case against the Marriott hotel in Nashville. And it definitely sparked some interesting conversations on the Internet:

    Absolutely.

    It's the age old 'fuck your buddies wife while you are secretly recorded on surveillance video then the footage is leaked to an online blog who posts it online without your permission then you sue them for damages' scam.

    One of the oldest tricks in the book
