(AP Photo/Chris Pizzello) (Newser) – If the phrase "Hulk Hogan sex tape" doesn't sit well with you, TMZ has good news: The wrestler is very serious about getting it yanked off the web. His lawyers are threatening to sue Gawker, which posted a short clip yesterday, and demanding that it come down immediately. (That hadn't happened as of this morning.) "This tape was made secretly without Hulk's knowledge or permission," says one of his attorneys. "We are going to do everything in our power to figure out who did it." Gawker says the 30-minute DVD came from an anonymous source.
