Fans will sometimes mistake a pro wrestler for someone else. Often times, it’s not a big deal, but sometimes it is simply hilarious. This is one of those former instances.

Throughout the history of professional wrestling, there have been numerous instances of wrestlers being mistaken for other wrestlers in the industry. However, an unexpected pairing that recently came to light was The Blade from AEW teaming up with WWE Hall of Famer Brutus ‘The Barber’ Beefcake.

In a peculiar case, a fan named David made a mix-up between the Hall of Famer and the current AEW star. Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake recently found out who The Butcher is.

In response to fans on Twitter, Beefcake shared a photo of a letter he received from David, requesting him to autograph three AEW cards featuring The Blade. The confusion arose because Beefcake had also wrestled under the name ‘The Butcher’ during his tenure in WCW, leading to this case of mistaken identity.


While it may seem far-fetched, these mix-ups can happen, and fans sometimes confuse wrestlers with similar names or personas, creating amusing and unexpected situations in the world of professional wrestling.

Fans send me stuff to sign all the time but I’m responding to this one.

Dear David, This is not me lol!! #BTFBB #brutusthebarberbeefcake #WWE #AEW #butcher

This is a pretty funny interaction from a fan, but it is also a sign that sometime fans just don’t know as much as they thought. If anything, this is certainly an instance of mistaken identity.

We will keep a close eye on this situation, right here at Ringside News. Only time will tell how many fans mistake Beefcake for other Superstars down the line.
