In his first on-camera interview since he was awarded more than $140 million in his sex-tape lawsuit, the former pro wrestler talks about wanting to take down Gawker and his emotional reaction to the verdict.

In his first on-camera interview since winning his sex-tape lawsuit against Gawker Media, Hulk Hogan told ABC News that regardless of the outcome of the trial, he was hoping to deliver a crushing blow to the Nick Denton-owned news site.

"I knew we were doing what was right," Hogan said in an interview from his hometown of Clearwater, Fla., that aired on Wednesday's Good Morning America. "Even if we would have lost, it would have been good because everybody would have known what Gawker is all about, because I exposed them and what they do and how they look at the world, which to me is very, very scary."

The former pro wrestler went on to slam former editor-in-chief A.J. Daulerio, saying when Daulerio took the stand, "His arrogance and his answers backed up his attitude and his beliefs. It scared me."
