In 1978, Brutus got his start teaming with Hulk Hogan as one half of “The Boulder Brothers,” Eddie Boulder. He wrestled both in the tag team ranks and also in singles competition (under variations to that name) in Memphis, Mid-South, AWA, NWA, New Japan & Germany.
As one of the top name talents during WWE’s national expansion in the 1980s, Brutus beefcake would soon go on to work with virtually everyone. He battled his archenemies like Adrian Adonis, the Honky Tonk Man, Outlaw Ron Bass and Mr. Perfect. He stood by the side of Roddy Piper, the Ultimate Warrior, and his very good friend “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan.
EARLY WWE DAYS – After a few minor matches in the WWF, he was widely recognized as the cornerstone member of manager “Luscious” Johnny Valiant’s Dream Team.
Donning the persona of a cocky male exotic dancer, the WWF fans hated him worldwide.
THE DREAM TEAM – It was not before long that Brutus Beefcake won his first taste of gold; The WWF World Tag Team Championships. Tagging with his partner, Hall of Famer, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine in 1985, they really tore up the tag team scene.
