Hulk Hogan Has to Go By His Real Name During Sex Tape Trial, Can Still Wear Bandana


Hulk Hogan’s “violation of privacy” case against Gawker over the published sex tapes goes to trial next week. Every trial sees its share of pre-trial issues on evidence that must be ruled upon. Not many involve a bandana and a famous wrestling name, however.

According to Anna Phillips, Hogan must go by Terry Bollea, his real name, during the trial. He is still allowed to wear a bandana, though it must be a plain one. The judge, meanwhile, denied a request to delay the trial while Gawker attorneys reviewed recently provided FBI tapes; the judge said repeatedly she didn’t want a carnival.

Yeah, probably not.
