WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan is set to induct former WWE star and good friend Brutus Beefcake into this year’s class of the Hall of Fame.
WWE made the news public on Thursday in a statement posted on their official website. This news also ended the speculation on inductors being done away with this year.
WWE touted in the announce that “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.”
