Ed Leslie, also known as Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, is suing Linda Hogan over her allegations that he and Hulk had a gay relationship.

Linda made the claims during a radio appearance in June. Hulk has already filed for a defamation suit after she said he physically abused her, and Leslie is doing the same.

Leslie said: "I've known [Linda] for almost 40 years ... but when she starts trying to ruin our careers, it just aint fair. Hulk is a tremendous person ... a great man who deserves to be happy."
