• Hulk Hogan’s WrestleMania 35 Weekend Role Revealed
“The Immortal” Hulk Hogan will be inducting Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2019 during WrestleMania 35 weekend.
Below is what WWE posted about this:
Hulk Hogan to induct Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake into the WWE Hall of Fame
“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 first joined forces in 1989, headlining that year’s SummerSlam against “Macho King” Randy Savage and the monstrous Zeus and later stepping into a Steel Cage to battle the ruthless duo. When Beefcake returned to the ring after a parasailing accident that nearly ended his life, Hogan was literally in “The Barber’s” corner, joining forces with him to form The Mega Maniacs, a duo that battled then-World Tag Team Champions Money Inc. at WrestleMania IX.
