But was he?
TMZ.com says that Hulk's BFF, Bubba the Love Sponge, is the culprit who secretly videotaped Hulk's liaison but later bragged about it, thus eliminating the secrecy factor. And the woman on the sex tape is Bubba's ex-wife, Heather Clem.
Clearly, Bubba and Heather are still on speaking terms. Shortly after Hulk finished plowing Heather and departed, TMZ.com reports, Bubba was on the scene and said to his ex, "If we ever did want to retire, all we'd have to do is use this footage."
Heather: "You'd never do that."
Bubba: "I wouldn't do that. You'd be the biggest rat; you'd be dead."
Meanwhile, Hulk went on Howard Stern's radio show Tuesday and admitted that he was with Bubba's ex but said that he did not believe that Bubba was the leaker, and that the pair were still friends.
Later, when confronted by TMZ.com, Hulk learned the sad truth and said that he was sick to his stomach.
We know the feeling.

what could be called his most electrifying stunt.

What a shock - he lived.
A spokesman said that Blaine was able to walk with assistance, speak and kiss fiancée Alizee Guinochet before being taken to a hospital to be examined.
The 39-year-old Blaine wore a chain mail bodysuit as a barrier between himself and the currents, emitted by Tesla coils.
