Hulk Hogan

Threatening LAWSUIT Over

Leaked Sex Tape Footage

Hulk Hogan
's leaked sex tape did NOT catch the wrestler with his pants down -- at least figuratively -- because TMZ has learned, he's already got his lawyers on the counter-attack, threatening to SUE if the tape isn't taken off the Internet.

Gawker posted a minute-long clip of the sex tape on its website yesterday -- but sources close to Hogan tell TMZ, it won't be up for long ... because Hogan's currently drafting a nasty cease-and-desist letter to the website, demanding the footage be taken down.

Hogan's claiming the site has no right to post the footage -- and if it doesn't remove it, he'll sue.

Hulk's lawyer David R. Houston tells TMZ, "This tape was made secretly without Hulk's knowledge or permission. We are going to do everything in our power to figure out who did it. Anyone displaying the tape will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law." 

As we first reported ... the Hogan tape was being shopped around to the highest bidder beginning earlier this year. Screen grabs hit the Internet in April, but video only surfaced yesterday.

Gawker says it obtained the tape from an anonymous source -- who gave the footage to the site for free.

As soon as news broke about the tape, Hogan immediately vowed to sue ANYONE who published it.  Hulk's word is his bond.

OH NO!    

I wonder if he wears his depends in the video. Nothing like an ancient grandpa, getting his rocket waxed. It's like the Gene Simmons video all over again.

OH NO!    

Who would be the audience for this video? Is there anyone in the entire world who is saying to themselves ..."I wonder what Hulk Hogan look like doing the nasty?" Does anyone want to see that? I mean, if he was slamming Brooke Hogan, that might be something to see.......but otherwise, I don't think my retinas could take it.

I can't imagine anyone in the entire world who would want to see this washed up lizard in a sex tape. I would rather floss my teeth with barbed wire than have to look at this man without a major article of clothing. In his dreams would anyone want to see a sex tape of him.

Has most of Hollywood gone stark raving mad?

It must be the latest fad to make a sex tap, claim it was stolen, then pretend you will sue if it got out. Reality show judges about to come to blows. The Real Housewives of NJ wanting to fight each other and talking about tearing hearts out bodies. Who knows what will be going on later today. This is crazy. LOL.
