The Immortal Hulk Hogan will induct Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake in to the WWE Hall of Fame, a press release from WWE revealed Thursday. The announcement confirmed rumors that Hogan would induct his longtime friend, which will presumably somehow help other's learn from Hogan's mistakes, which WWE swore last year was the only capacity in which they would work with him again after firing him in 2015.
Hogan and Beefcake have been on the outs in recent years, feuding in 2017 over Beefcake's ex-wife. In November of that year, when Hogan mused about potentially shaving his head on Twitter, Beefcake responded, "Brother I'd love to give the Hulkster a shave but he won't come near me he's to busy with my Xwife!" Beefcake then told Hogan to "hold onto his bandana" because he was going to write a tell-all book about Hogan, but Hogan responded by confirming his bandana was on tight and that Beefcake should get a lawyer.
Hogan has had bad luck with the wives and ex-wives of his friends over the years. The Hulkster's firing in 2015 was the result of a leaked racist rant secretly recorded as part of a cuckold sex tape involving Hogan and the wife of Florida radio shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge. It took three years before WWE was willing to stop pretending to care about that and begin bringing him back for nostalgia pops and to sell Hulkamania merchandise.
Thankfully, it seems that Beefcake and Hogan have buried the hatchet, allowing WWE to capitalize on Hogan once again at the Hall of Fame ceremony, which will be broadcast live on the WWE Network on Saturday.
