From 1wrestling.com

Brutus Beefcake (Ed Leslie) caused an Anthrax scare at a Boston subway station when a white powdery substance was found that caused the evacuation of the station where he was working. The substance was found on the counter of a fare booth being manned by Leslie, who later admitted it wasn't Anthrax but was cocaine.
Leslie has been suspended and has checked into rehab.

That's a great story. It would have been better if it was a Subway restaurant, though.

I wonder what he does for them, anyway?

Does he still haul out his "titanium" shears and hold them above his head and do the cutting motions? Did he finally buy a pair of pants that don't have holes up the sides of them? Sigh.

Well he use to work at the Downtown Crossing (Orange/Red line) as a fare collector. He checked himself into rehab. And I doubt he will be a employee of the MBTA after this. They had to close one of the busiest stations on a Sunday cause the jackass left his cocaine on fare booth counter and some morons thought it was anthrax.

Always good when the mainstream press has the man who main evented Starrcade '94 on page 2 with a pic.
www.bostonherald.com

Body Slam
T Scare lands ex-grappler in rehab.

He was the pec-perfect model for a toy action figure and a cartoon character puzzle, but it's former pro wrestling giant Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake who's gone to pieces.
Beefcake-These days Edward Leslie, 46, of Winchester- voluntarily checked himself into a treatment program Monday, according to a source, after cocaine he admitted was his created an anthrax scare at the MBTA's Downtown Crossing subway station.
Sources said the man who acquired his stage name for hacking off the hair of his enemies in the ring had been working there part time as a fare collector- a job that pays $25,000 a year.
"He was a big star for the World Wresling (Federation)," Buck Woodward, a columnist for the online magazine Pro Wrestling Insider, said yesterday of Leslie.
"During the '80s wrestling boom he became popular because he was very good friends with Hulk Hogan."
But behind the colossal bronzed chest and TV set of his own wrestling talk show, "The Barber Shop," Leslie's life was headed for the ropes. In 1990, his face was reconstructed with plates and bolts after a freak parasailing accident. Last April, the IRS slammed him wiht a lien for $57,425, according to records.
The MBTA confirmed yesterday they have an employeed named Edward Leslie, but would not say if he was the one they suspended without pay after cocained turned up Sunday afternoon on the counter of a Downtown Crossing fare booth, prompting an emergency hazmat response.
"Right now it's only an internal disciplinary matter," said MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo. "He has been cooperative with the police."
Although the subway station was evacuated, MBTA Deputy Police Chief Thomas McCarthy said the fare collector- who he also would not identify- spared commuters further inconvenience by coming clean and dispelling terrorism fears.
Leslie's wife Barbara, did not return a call yesterday.
Leslie was easilty earning 'six figures" in his heyday, said Woodward, noting that such falls from fame in the world of wrestling "have happened before. There are guys who wasted their money, just like a rock star."

Well, I guess Ed should be showing up in TNA soon.

And as a historical footnote, this was the first mainstream media quote someone from PWInsider has gotten.

Well, I don't know about HISTORICAL, but at least a first. :)

And when did Hogan start working for the T? Because HE is the only one who could get Leslie a job, right? Are there any up-and-coming T workers that they were holding back? Is there a glass ceilng at the T?

Somehow, I think subway stations are stricter with suspensions than wrestling promotions.

Sadly Brutis is one of MANY 80's "icons" who can't seem to kick the white horse dead.

I dare you to watch old SNME footage and point out 1 wrestler who ISN'T completely wasted.

Sad.

Beefcake is an asshole anyways.

I hope he turns his life around, I can see him working highschool gym shows in Manitoba for a few more years.

The MBTA has a union, there is a damn good possibility he will get his job back....most of the people who work for the T are political favor jobs so Brutus must know someone

Ed Leslie should have gone into full Zodiac mode during questioning "Yes no no yes yes no yes yes no" as the officer finally cuts in "Mr. Leslie we haven't asked you anything yet".
