There was talk that there would be no inductors this year at the WWE Hall Of Fame because the company wanted to cut down on the time of the entire ceremony due to speeches going long in previous years.
However, WWE announced today that Hulk Hogan will be the person inducting Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake at this year’s Hall Of Fame ceremony. This is not a surprise since Hogan and Beefcake are best friends.
Hogan and Beefcake have been tied together in the wrestling business since the late 70s and into their time with the World Wrestling Federation in the 1980s. Both men jumped to WCW in the early 90s and even headlined a Starrcade show against each other with Beefcake playing a heel as The Butcher.
No word yet on who will be inducting the other inductees this year. The WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony will air this Saturday at 7 pm eastern on the WWE Network.
