Beefcake spoke to Sports Illustrated and had the following to say about being inducted into the WWE HOF.
“I always thought I’d be a baseball player. I used to watch wrestling at the armory in Tampa as a kid, and I always enjoyed it, but never in my wildest imagination did I think I could do it. As a kid, I idolized Pete Rose and Mickey Mantle, and I actually played ball with Wade Boggs. Now we’re all Hall of Famers.”
