Hulk Hogan has been left ''devastated'' by the publication of his sex tape.

The 59-year-old wrestler - who confirmed earlier today (09.10.12) that the woman in the intimate footage is Heather Clem, the wife of his friend Bubba the Love Sponge - claimed he had no idea he was being filmed and is determined to find out who is responsible for leaking the footage.

He said on 'The Today Show': ''It was a bad choice and a very low point. I was with some friends and made a wrong choice. It has devastated me, I have never been this hurt.

''I'm going full blown to try and figure out who would do this to me.

''It's appalling. It's flipped my life totally upside down.''

Hulk - whose real name is Terry Bollea - is particularly upset because the attention has left his wife Jennifer McDaniel ''rattled''.

He added: ''My new wife Jennifer is rattled, she is not used to being part of the media. It's something devastating to me, I've never been through anything on this level.''

The wrestler - who was going through a split from then-wife Linda when the film was shot - can't understand why anyone would tape and leak the footage.

He questioned: ''What's the motivation?''
