Brutus Beefcake is in town for Motor City Comic Con this weekend and was kind enough to join me for a quick interview.

I asked Brutus about his time in the WWE, his favorite match, best memorabilia he has signed and also his thoughts on the Ultimate Warrior.

It didn’t go exactly as I had planned, he had a different take than I thought he would.

“I did know the warrior, I knew him when he first came in, Jim, a nice guy, turned into an ego maniac. One of those kinds of people that starts believing his own publicity and begins to alienate himself from people not talking to people, thinks he’s better than people, takes advantage of people, goes to his head. That’s what happened to the guy, lost all respect for him, it’s a shame he had to die. But, um, ya know, I’m an a lot older than he is, but look at me brother and I’m nowhere near dying, you know what, I take care of myself, I don’t do all that steroid sh** and all that crap. I go to the gym and work out.”

I also talked to Drea DeMatteo about Sopranos and more [HERE]
