An Appointment with the Barber

Ed Leslie had a lengthy wrestling career, most notably with the WWE and WCW. After wrestling as Brutus Beefcake for several years, he started bringing clippers to the ring to give haircuts to his defeated opponents. At WrestleMania III, he helped Roddy Piper shave the head of Adorable Adrian Adonis after Piper had defeated him with the sleeper. Brutus 'the Barber' Beefcake was born.
The Barber shtick was his longest running gimmick, but Leslie had several others, including Brother Bruti, the Disciple, the Butcher, Zodiac and Brute Force. Perhaps his oddest name was 'the Man with No Name'.
Whatever he called himself, he is one big dude. I met him in 2006, when he was 49 years old and he was still huge.

Is Mr. Beefcake using 'enhancers'?
