Even though he only sued for $100 million, the jury sided with WWE wrestling legend Hulk Hogan and awarded him $115 million in his suit against Gawker: the company that published part of his sex tape online.

According to TMZ, $55 million was for economic injuries, and $60 million for emotional distress.  It’s possible that he could get more (with punitive damages).

Without Hulk’s permission, Gawker published 1 minute and 50 seconds of a sex tape he made with his friend’s wife back in 2007.  To this day, Hulk says he didn’t know he was being recorded.
