Hulk Hogan will induct Brutus Beefcake into the WWE Hall of Fame

The long-awaited, highly anticipated, Mega Maniacs reunion will happen this Saturday night.

Today (Apr. 4) WWE announced that Hulk Hogan will induct Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake into the promotion’s Hall of Fame on Saturday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Below is the announcement from

“Hulk Hogan and Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake had each other’s back through thick and thin in WWE. This Saturday, The Hulkster will have the honor of presenting his close friend when he receives sports-entertainment’s highest honor, as he will induct Beefcake into the WWE Hall of Fame during the 2019 Induction Ceremony this Saturday, the eve of WrestleMania 35.”

Hogan and Beefcake originally teamed up to face the team of The Macho King Randy Savage and Zeus in the main event of SummerSlam 1989. At WrestleMania IX, Beefcake and Hogan formed the Mega Maniacs and unsuccessfully challenged Money Inc. for the WWF tag-team titles.

Beefcake would go on to follow Hogan to WCW as Brother Bruti, and then as a member of the nWo where he was repackaged as The Disciple.

It was only two years ago, when Hogan and Beefcake were caught feuding on social media in a bizarre argument about ex-wives, money, and other old disagreements.

If anything, Hulk Hogan will be in front of a live microphone on Saturday night, and will surely have something interesting to say about Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake.
