Hulk Hogan has won big in his war with Gawker - a jury awarded the WWE legend a $115 million judgment against the company for publishing part of his sex tape online.

He was awarded $55 million for economic injuries and $60 million for emotional distress. However, it's not over yet. The jury will decide next week how much to award in punitive damages - which is designed to punish defendants for intentional wrongdoing.

When this is all over, Hogan could be receiving more than $300 million dollars.

Update:

Hulk Hogan was just awarded $25 million in punitive damages in his sex tape lawsuit, bringing his total to $140 million. Gawker Media is on the hook for $15 million, site owner Nick Denton must pay $10 million, and A.J. Daulerio, the Editor responsible for posting the tape, has to fork over $100,000.

Gawker is of course is going to appeal. So when this is all over, I wonder what he will end up receiving.

I think he's going to receive at least $50 million - which he legally deserves, regardless of his past.
