Hulk Hogan finally has a good relationship with WWE after being banished by the company for making racist comments a few years ago. He was last seen paying tribute to Gene Okerlund on RAW this year. Now it seems he will have a role in the Hall Of Fame his year as well.
Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake will be inducted into the Hall Of Fame this year and Hulk Hogan will be the one inducting his old friend at the event on Saturday.
WWE released the following statement about Hogan’s appearance.
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.
What stories will Hogan share about his friend as Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake enters the WWE Hall of Fame? Find out during the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, streaming live this Saturday at 7 ET/4 PT on WWE Network.
This is no surprise as Brutus owes a lot to Hulk Hogan. Even though he had some unpleasant things to say about The Hulkster in his autobiography, it seems that everything is fine now.
