Largest Wrestlers in WWE History

1 . Kamala

Hailing from the wilds of Africa, the bizarre Superstar known as Kamala used his 375pound bulk and unorthodox offense to intimidate opponents in both WWE and WCW. Always barefoot with war paint all over his body, The Ugandan Giant competed in many twisted bouts, including a Steel Cage Match against Andre the Giant and a Coffin Match with Undertaker during his lengthy career. Kamalas most memorable moment, however, occurred outside the ring when he ate a live chicken on WWEs Tuesday Night Titans. No wonder challengers were afraid to step in the ring with him.

2 . Haystacks Calhoun

A household name at the peak of his popularity, Haystacks Calhouns uncommon girth made him a major boxoffice attraction throughout the 1950s and 60s. Born in Morgans Corner, Ark., in 1934, the 600pounder stayed true to his farm boy roots during his career, sporting a white Tshirt and blue overalls in battles against rivals like Mr. Fuji and the 800pound Happy Humphrey. This unique look made the behemoth a sensation in many different promotions, but his biggest success in WWE came in 1973 when he captured the World Tag Team Championships with Tony Garea, making him the heaviest man to ever hold that title.

3 . Big Daddy V

He went by many different names in WWE, but whether this 1995 King of the Ring winner obliterated opponents as Mabel, Viscera or Big Daddy V, one label always applied giant. With a smash mouth offensive style that was so vicious it could be hard to watch his spinning heel kick looked like it could destroy most compact cars this 500pounder was so intense between the ropes that he once shattered The Undertakers face.

4 . Don Leo Jonathan

A secondgeneration performer, Don Leo Jonathan was one of the most feared big men from his era. From the 1950s throughout the 70s, the Hurricane, Utah, native became a boxoffice attraction across the globe. Weighing as much as 340 pounds during his career, The Mormon Giants adaptability allowed him to wrestle a scientific match or brawl with the best of them depending on the situation. More times than not, Jonathans Spinning Full Nelson would spell defeat for his opponents. The 6foot6 competitor had great rivalries against the likes of Andre the Giant, Killer Kowalski, and Gene Kiniski, and had WWE Championship Matches against Bruno Sammartino and Pedro Morales.

5 . Crusher Jerry Blackwell

At 5foot9 and a rotund 474 pounds, Jerry Blackwell didnt look like one of the most agile big men of his era. But

6 . Bubba Ray Dudley

Bubba Ray Dudleys ring style was reminiscent of Bam Bam Bigelow. Aside from one being covered in tiedye and the other in flames, their size, strength, aggression and agility were scarily similar. At a snack shy of four bills, Bubba dropkicked, launched flying shoulder blocks and even top rope splashes that served doubly duty as colonics. As one of the six men that created the TLC Match, he was as comfortable creating offense with tables and ladders as he was with his fists and feet. However, Bubbas favorite maneuver was 3D, the Dudley Death Drop. The big man sadistically splattered anyone that his halfbrother DVon hoisted into the air en route to becoming the most decorated tag team wrestler in history.

7 . One Man Gang

The name says it all. A near 500pound hard hitter from the mean streets of Chicago, One Man Gang was an army unto himself. Standing at 6foot9 with his hair shaved into a wild Mohawk, Gangs appearance was intimidating enough, but it was his 747 Splash that opponents truly feared. From his days as the top dog in the bad dudeheavy Universal Wrestling Federation to his time in WWE under the tutelage of Slick, the powerhouse left behind a long line of victims. Gang shocked the WWE Universe in 1988 when he underwent a personality crisis and became Akeem, but the giants considerable size helped him remain a constant threat.

8 . Giant Baba

The great colossus of Tokyo, Shohei

9 . Abdullah the Butcher

Volatile and sadistic, with wild, darting eyes to match, Abdullah the Butcher was the stuff of nightmares. Unlike other superheavyweights, the near 400pound Madman from Sudan didnt rely solely on his massive frame to damage opponents, instead preferring to incorporate a wide assortment of weaponry none of which he wielded more reliably than his trusted fork.

10 . King Kong Bundy

King Kong Bundy liked making statements. Thats why the 445pound man mountain demanded that the official count to five after Bundy had flattened an opponent with his devastating Avalanche splash. Often referred to as a walking condominium by Gorilla Monsoon, the Atlantic City, N.J., native made history when he pinned S.D. Jones at the inaugural WrestleMania in nine seconds. The following year, Bundy experienced yet another milestone in his career when he battled WWE Champion Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 2 in a Steel Cage Match. Bundy never captured the title, but his size and aggression made him a serious danger in the ring.
