Company sources have confirmed to us that Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake will be one of the many names from the past being brought in by WWE for WrestleMania weekend.
This would add more credibility to the rumor about Beefcake getting inducted into this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame. The Beefcake-HOF story was first reported by the @WrestleVotes insider wrestling account. As noted earlier, WWE is bringing in a major name for WrestleMania weekend and he would be the likely name to induct Beefcake. Click here for more on that.
Beefcake was one of the top babyfaces for WWE in the late 1980s until a 1990 parasailing accident derailed his career for a couple of years. He returned to the ring in 1993 but he was never the same since that time as he jumped to WCW in 1994 under different monickers.
Aside from magazine and WWE.com features, WWE has not done much with Beefcake over the years as they’ve done with other legends.
Hogan and Beefcake had a strained relationship for a few years but they patched things up just over a year ago.
