In March, Hogan was awarded $140 million after suing Gawker Media for posting a clip of a sex tape he was in that was recorded without his consent.
The new suit claims Gawker is responsible for leaking the transcript of a racially insensitive rant that caused the WWE to cut ties with Hogan last year.
After Hogan's court victory, Gawker's founder wrote: "I had suspicions, but it is now clear that Hogan’s lawsuit was a calculated attempt to prevent Gawker, or anyone else who might obtain evidence of his racism, from publishing a truth more interesting and more damaging than a revelation about his sex life."
But Hogan insists with his original lawsuit he was just trying to protect himself and others from media overreach.
"I made people aware that this shouldn't happen to normal people, especially any kids that are on social media. ... Gawker is the ultimate bully," Hogan said on "The View."
In a statement given to media outlets, Gawker said, "It’s time for Hulk Hogan to take responsibility for his own words, because the only person who got Hulk Hogan fired from the WWE is Hulk Hogan."
