Founder Nick Denton suspected that Hogan had a tag team partner in wrestling his media company.

“My own personal hunch is that it’s linked to Silicon Valley, but that’s nothing really more than a hunch,” Mr. Denton told the NY Times. “If you’re a billionaire and you don’t like the coverage of you, and you don’t particularly want to embroil yourself any further in a public scandal, it’s a pretty smart, rational thing to fund other legal cases.”

Thanks To Some Poor Life Choices, These Kids With Famous Parents
Let’s face it. In the end? In the final analysis? You DON’T want to be the child of a celebrity. Sure, you grow up in the lap of luxury and enjoy privileges that that the rest of us can only dream, but the pitfalls can -- and usually are -- much worse.

Imagine having to live up to the career standard set by your world-famous, multi-millionaire parent?

Imagine having your every mistake, false move or indiscretion trumpeted across all the blogs and tabs?

Imagine if -- heaven forbid -- you’re not as blessed with the great looks of mom and dad?

That’s pressure. And that kind of pressure can...

8 Action Stars Over Sixty We Want For 'Expendables 4'

8/15/2014 10:00am EDT
Expendables 3
This weekend marks the opening of our third "Expendables" film. Yes it leaked online weeks ago, but that's small potatoes.

No minor setback could hinder Sylvester Stallone's box office take, not when he's in a film so inundated with action stars that each one has roughly 4.2 seconds of screen time (at which point they have their choice of high-fiving Stallone, casually ignoring an explosion or shooting an intern dressed in SWAT gear, before being hurriedly shuffled off-screen).

It is our firm belief that "The Expendables" should continue for at least seven more sequels, enough that Stallo...

Worst of the Worst: Hulk Hogan's "Hulk Rules"

8/1/2014 7:00pm EDT
Hulk Hogan, BROTHER!
It's almost impossible to describe anything as "the worst ever" because if there's one thing humans are good at, it's having opinions on things, and describing something as being bad can often be taken so far as to be seen as a personal attack. And invariably, there is almost always something that's even worse.

People will always also argue that things they don't like are bad, but that's just their opinion, and that is only one way of looking at it, because realistically not everyone will love everything, it's how it works. However, there are truly some songs that are so bad that they can ...

Real life often mimics soap operas, and 2012 was no exception. Several celebrities were embroiled in sex scandals and nude photo leaks. As much as these stars try to keep some things to themselves, sometimes their private moments result in a media frenzy.
