When The Hulkster and Linda Hogan got a divorce, Hogan lost more than he gained. On the other hand, Linda Hogan came out of the divorce with quite a handsome amount.

Reportedly, Linda received 70% of her and Hogan’s liquid assets and 40% ownership stake in his companies. That wasn’t all. She received an additional $3 Million property settlement and $7.44 Million for their joint investment accounts.

On the other hand, Hogan was left with a mere $2.97 Million and had to put up a considerable number of his houses for sale to pay Linda Hogan her share from the divorce.

Keeping the above aside, Hogan was ordered by court to pay $180,000 to Linda Hogan’s lawyers to pay off her legal bills. Reportedly, the legal fees continued to accumulate for Linda Hogan as The Hulkster continued to delay the process of transferring the settle amount to her.

The only positive side for Hulk Hogan was he didn’t have to pay alimony and didn’t have to share any of his earnings from appearances.
