It didn't take very long for the trial to come to a verdict, but Hulk Hogan has just received the biggest victory of his life, much bigger than beating Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania 3. A jury has determined that Gawker was in the wrong for allowing footage from a Hogan sex tape to go public.

In a rather interesting bit of news, Sami Zayn is actually scheduled to work a match at Wrestlemania 32. He was scheduled to be in Dallas that weekend because he is wrestling Shinsuke Nakamura in a big match at a special NXT event. No word yet on what match Zayn is going to be wrestling in, but the guess is that it will more than likely be the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal, which may or may not take place before the pay per view.

When asked by a fan through social media if he would be in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 32 this year, Chris Jericho flat out stated that there was no chance in hell of that happening. The belief is that the former world heavyweight champion wants a regular match on the main card, preferably with someone younger and newer that he can put over. Jericho has a decent amount of backstage clout with WWE officials.

At the next Wrestlemania, WWE originally had plans to unveil a statue for Hulk Hogan, much like they did for Andre the Giant previously.

In a rather interesting development, Scott Steiner has challenged Hulk Hogan to come to the Legends of Wrestling event on June 7, 2015 in New York. Steiner states that Hogan's biggest claim to fame is body slamming Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania decades ago. He is putting up a million dollars out of his own pocket to say that Hogan cannot body slam him now. Of course, Steiner also threatened to attack Hogan if he does show up in the ring.

There are those in WWE that are already second guessing the decision to have Big Show winning the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania. He has not exactly done much with the trophy since then. His feud with Roman Reigns would have worked out just fine without the thing being involved. Rumors have it that a main source of discontent about the situation is that it would have better served someone like Damien Sandow.
