In a recent article, Brutus Beefcake, 50, claims he’s undergone a vigorous training regimen this year and has dropped 70 pounds, bringing him down to 220. He says he’s in the best shape of his life. The impetus was his wife constantly burying him and calling him “fat boy.” He had been running a gym and finally started putting it to use for himself. He started working out for two and a half hours a day, seven days a week. He also fixed up his diet. “I was training like a mad man on a mission, and it paid off,” Beefcake said. “Now everywhere I go heads spin around three times and people tell me I look better now than I did 25 years ago. At my age I look better than 99.9 percent of the wrestlers do now. It is all in your head. The only person holding you back is you”.

On the Best Damn Sports Show Period last night, they showed footage of Bret Hart, Jim Neidhart, Tatanka, Brian Knobs and Brutus Beefcake signing autographs at the Tampa Bay Devil Rays game from last Friday. Rob Dibble wanted to know where Sgt. Slaughter was, but he wasn’t there obviously. Dibble was quickly asked as to who his favorite wrestler was, and he said Hulk Hogan.
