WWE Blocks Brutus the Barber Beefcake
(Wrestling beef...WWE says no more Beefcake)
WWE has officially sent a cease-and-desist order regarding Brutus the Barber Beefcake (real name: Edward Leslie) who is now a judge for the CMT show: "Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling". The order (addressed to Eric Bischoff and Country Music Television, Inc.) asks that Leslie stop using his old WWF name of "Brutus the Barber Beefcake", which WWE claims they hold the trademark on. According to the WWE, Leslie stopped using the wrestling name Brutus the Barber Beefcake once he went on WCW several years ago.
Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling currently features Dennis Rodman, Danny Bonaduce, Todd Bridges, Tiffany, Frank Stallone and other celebrities competing in wrestling matches & challenges as they face elimination weekly. They are judged by the likes of Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Jimmy Hart and the aforementioned Edward Leslie (Brutus). Official site here
