Total Voters: 1,030

The GERWECK.NET Hall of Fame is intended to include the elite members of the wrestling community that deserve to be inducted into a prestigious hall of fame without prejudice or politics. Areas of consideration for induction should include (but not be limited to) a wrestler’s drawing power, wrestling ability, impact or influences on the business, longevity, and passion/drive for the industry. Non-in ring performers (such as promoters, announcers, referees, etc.) should also be judged by a similar criterion, based on the highest standards for their areas. Remember, this is not a popularity contest. This hall of fame will only include the best of the best. Readers should e-mail halloffame@gerweck.net with names of candidates worthy of consideration. The name with the highest number of suggestions will be considered for voting the following month. Thus, twelve names will be considered per year, and the number of inductees for the year is totally up to the GERWECK.NET readers. If a subject doesn’t qualify for induction, he or she will remain off the consideration list for twelve months. If a subject receives 70% or higher, he or she will be inducted.

    Brutus Beefcake deserves to be inducted into the GERWECK.NET Hall of Fame as he had a legendary career in wrestling even though if he has had many gimmicks. Was he awesome in the ring? No. Could he cut a decent promo? Not particularly. But he was charismatic and had fun in the ring and people responded to it.

    He is best known as Brutus Beefcake in WWE for being Hulk’s friend and for shaving people’ heads.

    He was The Disciple (as part of the New World Order), The Booty Man, The Zodiac (as part of the Faces of Fear) and The Man With No Name in WCW.
