Time for the struttin and the cuttin. It’s the go home week for WrestleMania 35 and we don’t have many more things to take care of. Well save for the Raw Tag Team Title match, the SmackDown Tag Team Title match, whatever else they have planned for the Raw Women’s Title match and probably multiple other things. As of today though, we don’t have anyone left to announce for the Hall of Fame Class of 2019.
WWE.com has announced that Brutus the Barber Beefcake will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday night. Beefcake has been rumored to be inducted for several weeks and was spoiled by an announcement on a New York City radio station last week. Beefcake was a one time World Tag Team Champion and was scheduled to win the Intercontinental Title before having his face destroyed in a parasailing accident in 1990. There is no word on who will be inducting him.
Beefcake was better than you might remember. Check out one of his biggest matches at WrestleMania VI:
Opinion: This one might seem like a bit of a stretch but really, Beefcake was one of the more popular wrestlers of his era and one of the most charismatic guys around. He might not have been the best worker but his charisma alone was more than enough to carry him wherever he needed to go. I’m curious about who inducts him though, as Hulk Hogan would be the most likely choice, though you would expect him to actually be mentioned in the announcement.
Who should induct Beefcake? What was his best match? Let us know in the comments below.
