Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake To Be Inducted Into WWE Hall Of Fame

Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, real name Ed Leslie, will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2019 during WrestleMania 35 week on Saturday.  Beefcake joined WWE in 1984, later forming The Dream Team with Greg “The Hammer” Valentine. The team defeated The British Bulldogs in 1985 to become Tag Team Champions.  Beefcake and Valentine would go their separate ways at WrestleMania 3, with Beefcake then showing up for “Rowdy” Roddy Piper’s Hair vs. Hair match against Adrian Adonis. Beefcake, following Piper’s victory, cut Adonis’ hair off, officially making him The Barber.  Beefcake was known for knocking his opponents out with his signature Sleep Hold, which would then allow him to cut their hair. He enjoyed feuds with fellow class of 2019 member The Honky Tonk Man, “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Curt “Mr. Perfect” Hennig.
