Hulk Hogan, the veteran wrestler currently caught in the eye of a sextape storm, stopped by HuffPost Live on Tuesday to talk about his personal life, career and, naturally, politics.

The Hoganator said that he's currently leaning toward voting for Mitt Romney. "That's where I'm at right now," he told HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill. "Something needs to change in this country. There's no reason why this country shouldn't be up and running and everybody healthy and happy and prosperous. We need a change. I'm just waiting for someone to take the lead and run."

Hogan explained that he felt "there were a lot of promises, man."

Though he was voicing his support for the Republican candidate, Hogan was careful to make explicit that he felt the issues plaguing America were not the fault of one man or party. "And I just know everybody is identified with different interest groups, and how you have to bow down," Hogan said. "So it's not one man, it's the whole political environment that needs to regroup. It's too tangled up."

"I think he knows I'm on the team," Hogan said when asked if Romney knew of his support. "I showed up at an event down in Tampa [and] spoke my peace."

A sextape of Hogan was leaked to Gawker. In the video, Hogan can be seen engaging in various sex acts with Heather Clem, the wife of Hogan's friend Bubba the Love Sponge. According to Hogan, Bubba was aware of, and OK with, their activities.
