This paper toy is the Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake (Edward Leslie), created by Qooplo. Edward Harrison “Ed” Leslie is an American professional wrestler, best known for his work in the World Wrestling Federation under the ring name Brutus The Barber Beefcake. He later worked for World Championship Wrestling under a variety of names, mainly as “The Disciple” of real-life best friend Hulk Hogan. He is a former WWF World Tag Team Champion.
In 1994, Leslie debuted in World Championship Wrestling. At first, he only made short appearances with Hulk Hogan, who referred to him as Brother Bruti At that year’s Halloween Havoc, following Hogan’s cage match victory over Ric Flair, Bruti was revealed as the masked man who had attacked Hogan just before his title match with Flair at Clash of the Champions XXVIII. Bruti subsequently became The Butcher, and formed The 3 Faces of Fear with Kevin Sullivan and Avalanche. The Butcher-Hogan culminated in a WCW World Heavyweight title match at Starrcade, which The Butcher lost.
The Butcher continued wrestling for some time after The 3 Faces of Fear broke up in January 1995, then became amnesic, as The Man with No Name. Leslie rejoined Sullivan in his new stable The Dungeon of Doom, as The Zodiac, a character wearing black and white face paint and only ever saying, “Yes, no, yes, no!” The Dungeon of Doom feuded with Hogan for most of the remainder of 1995. Hogan eventually turned Zodiac against his stablemates by revealing him as a mole.
After leaving The Dungeon of Doom, Leslie became The Booty Man, and his gimmick was that of a man infatuated with his own ass, shaking it on the way to the ring and during matches. His signature move was a high knee. He was accompanied to the ring by Kimberly Page and feuded with Diamond Dallas Page.
The Booty Man, like Leslie’s other WCW gimmicks, did not last long. When the nWo started, he attempted to join and was instead attacked by Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Hollywood Hogan. Leslie then left WCW for nearly two years.
In 1998, Leslie returned as The Disciple, the bodyguard of Hollywood Hogan. He was almost unrecognizable at first, with a new full beard, dark sunglasses, and nWo-styled biker attire. His true identity was later revealed onscreen by Roddy Piper, during his feud with Hogan. The Disciple accompanied Hogan to the ring for his matches, and would often be called on to assist in beating down an opponent, often using his new finishing move, “The Apocalypse”. The Disciple was abducted by The Warrior during Warrior’s feud with Hogan, and was later seen hanging from his feet backstage. After being brainwashed by The Warrior, he turned on Hogan and became the second member of Warrior’s One Warrior Nation. After Warrior left WCW, The Disciple’s push largely diminished and he spent the remainder of his time in WCW as a “jobber to the stars”. His last televised WCW match was a loss to Disco Inferno on Saturday Night in October 1999.
