Raymond [Rougeau] runs in when Jacques is in the sleeper and then Brutus [Beefcake] pulls a weapon [the shears] on them. That’s weird, the more you think about it. They pretend he’s going to cut their hair and that’s why they’re scared, but no, dog, it’s because he’s about to gut them with fuckin hedgeclippers.
Goddamn I love Tape Machines are Rolling. Put the feed in your readers, kids.
But it reminded me how we weren’t bothered by the fact that Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake would constantly menace people with gigantic, sharp hedge clippers, but never follow through on using them. It’s especially worth noting because, as a kid, I always used to play with any hedge clippers I came across and pretend I was Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake.
How many children were maimed or killed doing what I did? We’ll never know. It’s the true quiet crisis of professional wrestling.
