However, due to Hogan’s no-holds-barred approach to alcohol after he broke up with his wife Linda five years ago, he can’t remember the name of his companion in the video.

The wrestler admitted that “he banged so many chicks after he left his ex-wife … the woman could be one of MANY possible conquests”.

He blamed his memory lapse on a four-month drinking bender after he left his Linda and before he met his current wife Jennifer.

“During that time, I don’t even remember people’s names, much less girls,” he said, possibly not realising that girls are actually people, too.

But the 58-year-old former WWF champion insists that he hasn’t had sex with another woman since meeting his current wife, 36-year old Jennifer, five years ago. Jennifer is widely noted to look similar to Hogan’s daughter, Brooke – but we won’t go there.

Hogan had no idea who was selling the homemade porno or how that person got their grubby hands on it, but said his lawyers would prosecute anybody they found responsible for its distribution. Hogan is adamant it was filmed without his permission.

Entertainment website TMZ reported it had seen  the grainy footage, featuring Hogan getting undressed and a naked, unidentified brunette lying on a bed.

In the clip, Hogan – sporting a thong-shaped tan line – apparently pulls his shirt off and boasts, “I started to work out again.”

This isn’t the first time Hogan has been wrapped up in legal matters.

At the end of last year Hogan was suing his ex-wife Linda, claiming she lied and defamed him in her book.

She wrote that her husband abused her during their marriage and had homosexual encounters with fellow wrestlers.
