Brutus Beefcake, born Edward Harrison Leslie, is a nine-time champion and pay-per-view headliner that began his pro wrestling career in the 1970s. He debuted with the WWF in 1984 and became a part of The Dream Team, along with Greg “The Hammer” Valentine. Beefcake stuck around the industry for decades, and most recently wrestled for Big Time Wrestling in 2010.
In 2013, Leslie received some odd press when he showed up at City Hall in Toronto, toting a sub sandwich and scissors, claiming that Rob Ford, the mayor, needed an “intervention.” The mayor was in the midst of a narcotics scandal, but security still was not having any of it, and they removed him from the premises. Leslie still makes an appearance here and there, but he’s retired from getting in the ring.
