    Brutus Beefcake: Struttin' & Cuttin' is the autobiography of Brutus Beefcake. As I've mentioned in other reviews, I've been a pro-wrestling fan my entire life. While Brutus was never my favorite, I did dress up as The Barber for Halloween when I was 13. Thankfully, there are no surviving photos. One of my friends, Alex Davidson, recommended this to me two or three times before I finally gave it a read. I should have listened to him sooner because this was fucking great. Brutus' career was derailed Brutus Beefcake: Struttin' & Cuttin' is the autobiography of Brutus Beefcake. As I've mentioned in other reviews, I've been a pro-wrestling fan my entire life. While Brutus was never my favorite, I did dress up as The Barber for Halloween when I was 13. Thankfully, there are no surviving photos. One of my friends, Alex Davidson, recommended this to me two or three times before I finally gave it a read. I should have listened to him sooner because this was fucking great. Brutus' career was derailed in the early 1990s when a parasailing accident destroyed his face and that's where the book starts. I was hooked from the first page. From there, we go to young Ed Leslie growing up in the Tampa area, meeting the boy who would be Hulk Hogan when they were both playing little league. One early indicator of how much I'm going to enjoy a wrestling book is how quick they get to the wrestling part. Brutus was on the fringes of the wrestling business by the 10% mark so I sat back and enjoyed the ride after that. Brutus covers all of his ups and downs, going from territory to territory, from his early days as Eddie Boulder to Eric Bischoff firing him via Fed-Ex in the late 1990s, and everywhere in between. We get Brutus' accounts of Andre the Giant, Danny Spivey kicking the shit out of Adrian Adonis, the infamous attack on Dynamite Kid by Jacques Rougeau, and lots of other backstage shenanigans. We also get hilarious road stories involving sex, drugs, drugs, booze, drugs, booze, and sex. I complain that a lot of wrestling books are light on road stories but this one is full of them. It's not all hilarious, however. The story of Brutus' parasailing accident is not for the faint of heart. I read about it in the Apter mags not long after it happened but this version, from the Barber's own mouth, was so much worse. His life after WCW is no picnic, either, working indy shows for a fraction of what he once made. Fortunately, his life with wife #3 and a WWE Legends contract seems to have turned a corner for him. I never thought I'd say this but Brutus Beefcake's book is the most entertaining wrestling book I've read in a very long time. Four out of five stars.

    First off, I have read a lot if not all of wrestlers auto/bios. With all of their traveling and working around the world, they generally have great stories. Beefcake’s story is no different. He has been around a long time, and his career has been up, down, and just about everything in between. I always thought Mick Foley’s first book was arguably the best wrestling book out there, and if that’s so Beefcake’s is a close second. It is a great read, and I highly recommend it!

I had the pleasure of meeting Brutus earlier in 2017 at the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market (Trenton,NJ) and he was the nicest, most down to earth guy. Do yourself a favor and read “Struttin and Cuttin” today!

    This a was great book about the wrestler Ed Leslie and his career. The book covers his early career in the business and all the way through the Indy scene after leaving WCW. There are great stories, along with guest wrestlers giving commentary about Ed and his character, along with the guests giving their side of a topic that Beefcake discusses. There is a lot in the book (the book length shows that), and is worth the read even if you were not a fan of his Beefcake character.

    Could use some review to edit and tidy up the repetition and to add more information as some time periods and events are glossed over e.g. I had no idea he was married, let alone 3 times, until 66%of the way into the book! Focus is on the wrestling side, overall a fun read.

    Very interesting, insightful, and often times laugh out loud funny memoir from a wrestler who has seen it all. Glad it was an in-depth book, as Brutus's story should be told in a format that is conducive to great detail. Definitely worth the purchase!

    Lot of typos and editing errors but still one of the better wrestling books. Ed seems pretty honest and reasonably likable.

    hogan-adjacent muscleman ed leslie gives you loads of detail on his life and times, and the book is worth it just for the discussion of his horrific boating/waterskiing accident

    Great book Wrestling fan or not your gonna enjoy this book. Odds are your a fan so as a fan this is what to expect, lots of great background and backstage stories, some entertaining home stories, many of these books have home stories or childhood stories that drag and are tedious but not this book. This is truly a non-stop great read beginning to end.

I wasent that big of a Brutus fan either as a kid more of a Bret Hart, Mankind, Hogan fan, Bret Hart book with Mankind's book right after it are the 2 best books I've EVER read out of any genre (I loved the Silence of the Lambs series), I've read at least 100 full wrestling books and I would easily put his in the top 5 of any wrestling book I've read, Jerichos book and Death of WCW would also be in my top 5. Hopefully my review will cause a few people to read this book. If your on the fence, read the sample like I did and you would be hooked! The chapters on his accident and surgery are truly incredible and entertaining and he doesn't take him self too seriously and can poke fun at his career. (Zodiac anyone) Buy this book!

    Always a fan of reading wrestling books from the 80's and 90's wrestlers. The book does do alot of jumping back and forth and doesn't always seem to be in chronological order. I bought the ebook from Amazon and in the last 1/2 of the book there started to be a lot more typos and sentences that look like they hadn't been proofread. Overall I highly recommend the book for any wrestling fan. Always a fan of reading wrestling books from the 80's and 90's wrestlers.

    Typos aside, Brutus tells some hilarious tales of his travels in the mat game and some tragic tales of life. I wasn't sure what to expect, but at no point was I not entertained.
