1. SOUNDBITE (English) Hulk Hogan, Former Pro Wrestler:
"I'm really happy about everything that's happened and I think we've made history today because I think we've protected a lot of people from maybe going through what I went through so we're very excited, very happy."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Hulk Hogan, Former Pro Wrestler:
"The community knows who I am you know. My WWE family knows who I am, they've been very supportive of me and at the end of the day it's just nice to get back to normal with all of my family and friends in the area it's just, it's been unbelievable everywhere I go, everywhere I show up people still treat me like I'm still the champ and they've been very supportive so it's really cool to be in this community and feel the love from everybody."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Salina Stevens, 35, Juror:
"It just took a lot of discussion, you know? There's no formula for this. You know you just kinda have to pull numbers and get an idea of what each person is making and kind of go at a percentage of that so that's just how we got there."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Salina Stevens, 35, Juror:
"Well what we really stuck out for us, well for me - I don't want to speak for the rest of the jury at all in any of this any of my statements I'm not speaking for anybody else, when we actually viewed the video, that changed the game for me, I mean I went into that deliberation room thinking on way and watching that video sealed it for me."
UPSOUND (English) Reporter: "What were you thinking initially?"
SOUNDBITE (English) Salina Stevens, 35, Juror:
"I was thinking towards the plaintiff. I believe his privacy was violated, and that's not OK, The video was worse than I expected in some sort of content, not so much the sex part of it but just the conversation. I just feel like if he knew he was being videotaped, he would not have spoken about the things he spoke about."
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Salina Stevens, 35, Juror:
"Just the conversation that what going on between him and the woman in the video. It was very human and if you're going to be videod you would not be talking like that."
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Salina Stevens, 35, Juror:
"I understand that we have a First Amendment and I stand behind the First Amendment but, I'm in front of a ton of media saying this which is intimidating, I don't want that to be used improperly and I think that it is used improperly way too often and you know we also have privacy laws and I hope that those will be taken into more consideration when stories are being ran."
Moments after a Florida jury hit Gawker Media and its founder with $25 million in punitive damages for publishing a sex tape of Hulk Hogan, the former pro wrestler told a gaggle of reporters that he and his legal team "made history."
Hogan said Monday evening that he thought "we've protected a lot of people from going through what I went through."
The smiling 62-year-old, who wore all black throughout the three-week trial, added that he's been overwhelmed with support by fans.
The punitive damages come on top of $115 million the jury imposed Friday after two weeks of trial.
One juror, 35-year-old Salina Stevens, told reporters that watching the video posted by Gawker finally convinced her to find for Hogan.
