Hulk Hogan‘s battle with Gawker has been on for four years and the two have finally reached a settlement.

According to the New York Times, Hulk Hogan has settled his sex tape lawsuit with Gawker for $31 million.

According to court documents, the settlement comes eight months after courts awarded Hulk Hogan $140 million in damages after the site posted a sex tape of him.

“After four years of litigation funded by a billionaire with a grudge going back even further, a settlement has been reached,” Gawker founder Nick Denton wrote in a blog post. “The saga is over. Hogan’s retirement will be comfortable.”

“As with any negotiation for resolution, all parties have agreed it is time to move on,” David Houston, Hulk‘s lawyer, said in a statement.

    Not that I like Gawker, but that money can bury the press is worrying.
