"Thank you God, I am grateful, 'I AM THAT I AM.'"

Following his multimillion dollar victory against Gawker, Hulk Hogan took to social media to do a little trolling. 

On Tuesday, a day after the wrestling icon was awarded even more money in a lawsuit he brought against the blog site, Hogan posted a picture of himself from his heydays performing a leg drop. Only the picture was photoshopped to add the Gawker logo where his opponent was once lying on the matt. 

Hogan, who has more than 1.4 million Twitter followers, was active on the social media platform during his trial, usually posting a tweet every few days.

On Monday, Hogan was awarded an additional $25 million in punitive damages — $15 million from Gawker, $10 million from its owner Nick Denton and $100,000 from former Gawker editor-in-chief A.J. Daulerio — on top of his $115 million verdict against the blog site Monday. 

Hogan sued the site for posting a sex tape of him, which he said he did not know was made. 

Following the punitive damages judgment, Gawker general counsel Heather Dietrick said, "There is so much this jury deserved to know and, fortunately, that the appeals court does indeed know. So we are confident we will win this case ultimately based on not only the law but also on the truth."
