Hulk Hogan

Refiles $100 Mil Sex Tape

Lawsuit Against Gawker

Hulk Hogan
 is moving forward with his $100 million lawsuit against Gawker for posting his sex tape online ... TMZ has learned, the wrestling legend has refiled the case.

Hulk dismissed the lawsuit in federal court without prejudice last month, and refiled it in Florida state court -- where he's also currently suing his sex tape partner Heather Clem ... the ex-wife of radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge. Hulk claims Clem played a role in leaking the footage to the media.

Hulk's lawyer tells TMZ, Hulk dismissed the federal case in order to consolidate his claims against both Clem and Gawker ... i.e. to bring both cases under the same roof ... which ultimately means less paperwork and attorney's fees.

As we reported, Hulk sued Gawker last October for posting a minute-long clip of him doing the dirty with Clem ... a tape that was recorded more than 6 years ago.

Hulk also sued Bubba the Love Sponge for unspecified damages -- accusing him of leaking the footage to the media -- but that lawsuit was settled, and Bubba apologized on the air.

He's suing because that's the only way he would make money from that sorry excuse for a "sex tape". That video sucked as much as his wrestling and acting skills

I wouldn't be surprised if, as some here have said, this was all a conspired "leak" to gauge interest in this Unholy Mess. And if it is, I can't say I blame Hogan. Linda took him for everything but his mustache, the greedy pig.

That said... Hulk Hogan... sex tape... *shaking hands in front of her* Ew! Ew! Ew!
