The friendship between Hulk Hogan and Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake goes back over 30 years. If you watched these two well tanned men work together in WWE (then known as the WWF) going in the late 1980s that teamed up once in a while (they won SummerSlam 1989’s main event) and into their WCW careers in the 1990s (they headlined Starrcade 1994), they have always been close. They were so close that Hogan’s ex-wife Linda called them gay in her book, which led to lawsuits from both guys.
Fast forward to 2017, both men are in their 60s now and the friendship is not going well. It all started with Hulk Hogan tweeting about how he needed a haircut. Why would you tweet about a haircut instead of just going to get a haircut? Because he’s the Hulkster, brother. That’s what he does.
A fan named Darren tweeted Hulk about it and tagged Brutus Beefcake in a tweet, which set the whole thing off.
Things escalated from there.
This pic that Beefcake of Hogan is old school and also pretty funny.
Brutus really made it personal by sharing emails with people on Twitter.
This story also involved Beefcake’s daughter, which again makes it very personal.
Reading that whole thing was pretty sad, but at least I got a chuckle out of Beefcake posting an image of mid-1990s WWF “lawyer” Clarence Mason when Hogan to get a lawyer.
Hopefully both men realize that posting about their problems on Twitter isn’t going to help either of them, but I can understand why Beefcake is frustrated. Good luck to both of them in sorting this out.
