WWE News: Hulk Hogan Will Induct Brutus Beefcake into 2019 WWE Hall of Fame This Saturday

The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony takes place this Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. It will air live on WWE Network at 7pmET. You would think that WWE would have announce some names that would induct the individuals and groups going into the Hall of Fame this year, but so far there’s only one name that was announced today: Hulk Hogan.

The Hulkster will be inducting his good friend Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony this year. Here’s the official announcement from WWE.com:

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.

We are still waiting on names for who will induct the other Hall of Famers this year. That Hall of Fame group includes:

D-Generation X (Shawn Michaels, Triple H, X-Pac, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and Chyna) – They will likely be the headline act that goes on last.
Honky Tonk Man
The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart)
Harlem Heat (Booker T and Stevie Ray)
Torrie Wilson
Sue Aitchison – Warrior Award for 30+ year WWE employee.

The format of the WWE Hall of Fame is rumored to have a different format this year with time limits on speeches, but nothing has officially been announced by WWE.
