Hulk Hogan is presently a part of some unwanted Hulkamania.

It has emerged today that Hogan appears in a sex tape that is being shopped to major porn industries. The video was put out without Hogan's consent, however, and a lawsuit seems to be looming.

According to TMZ.com, Hogan's representatives say the tape was "secretly filmed," an "outrageous invasion of privacy" and that the filming was done without his permission.

"Terry Bollea is appalled at the unauthorized release of a secretly filmed video. [Hulk] neither approved of the filming nor the release of the same.  It is clearly an outrageous invasion of privacy and breach of trust if it is genuine.  We will take all necessary steps to enforce both civil and criminal liability.”

Another TMZ report says that the woman in the video is not his ex-wife Linda or current wife Jennifer McDaniel.

Is Hogan being honest by claiming that he had no knowledge that he was being filmed?

It sounds to me that this is truly an invasion of privacy and that the Hulkster is being genuine with his response to the video's release.

This is not the type of media that Hogan wants to be a part of at this stage in his life.
