The WWF in the 1980s had its fair share of crazy characters: Jake "The Snake" Roberts, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, and the subject of today's podcast, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake. To provide even more insight into Beefcake's autobiography, Struttin' and Cuttin', we've brought on coauthor Kenny Casanova to share Brutus stories both from the book and beyond. We talk about Beefcake's relationship with Hulk Hogan, his shining moments at WrestleMania III and SummerSlam 1989, and his legacy as one of the most memorable characters in WWF history.
