Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake is a name that resonates with wrestling fans worldwide. Known for his flamboyant personality and trademark shears, he was all about “cuttin’ and struttin'” in the ’80s and early ’90s.
This marquee Superstar played a pivotal role during WWE’s national expansion in the 1980s. He engaged in epic battles with rivals like The Honky Tonk Man and Mr. Perfect, sharing the main event stage with his close friend, Hulk Hogan, at memorable events like SummerSlam ’89 and WrestleMania IX.
One of Beefcake’s defining moments came at WrestleMania III during a Hair vs. Hair Match between Roddy Piper and Adrian Adonis. At odds with Adonis at the time, Beefcake rushed to the ring to help Roddy Piper, and in front of over 93,000 WWE fans, he transformed into “The Barber.” With candy-striped garden shears in hand and his unmistakable spandex attire, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake quickly became a beloved fan-favorite. He was renowned for his Sleeper Hold and, of course, his hair-cutting antics.
Beefcake’s legacy extends beyond WWE as he continued his wrestling journey in WCW, adopting various personas like the Booty Man, the Zodiac, the Disciple, and Brother Bruti.
This flashy Superstar remains one of the most popular and enduring figures in professional wrestling, making his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2019 a well-deserved honor.
