WWE wrestler Hulk Hogan has won his law suit against Gawker.

The wrestling star burst into tears as the verdict was read and he was awarded $115 million in damages.

Hulk Hogan Had only filed for a $100 million for invasion of privacy. But the Florida jury saw it fit to award the 62 year old Hogan an additional $15 million.

Gawker founder Nick Denton says he and his law team are already appealing the verdict, but Florida law requires that he pay the money even before appeal.

Gawker released a sex tape of Hulk Hogan and a woman Heather Clem, and Hogan claimed he had no idea the act was being filmed.
