Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake May Have to Shave His Own Name

Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake May Lose Name

Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake Could Lose Name in Court

If a cease-and-desist order filed by World Wrestling Entertainment, (aka WWE aka The WWF) is granted, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, whose real name is Edward Leslie, will be forced to stop using one of the most recognizable and classic monikers in modern wrestling.

The WWE claims that they own the trademarked name and that Leslie, who dropped the name when he started working for the WCW, does not have the right to use it.  Leslie counters saying that he has been using the name since 2000 without any trouble from the WWE.

Leslie recently a jumpstart to his career when he became a coach on Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling.

  1. I’m a big fan of WWE..But I wasn’t able to know him. Well, I think, he should arrange those kind of things first before he leave WWE.. So,because he didn’t have a trouble about it for a long time,he’ll just ignore it.. We should not wait for our doom to come..
