5 of the most corpulent wrestlers in the history of WWE

Any random person on the street might provide a fairly generic description of what a professional wrestler is like. They must be large, tall, and have biceps that are the size of beach balls. The next slideshow will feature five WWE superstars who qualify as behemoths. wrestlers who possessed extraordinary strength, power, stature, height, and girth. Some will undoubtedly be thought of as fitting the wrestler stereotype, while others will undoubtedly not. The final five, though not in any particular sequence, seem to best capture their status as historical behemoths.

Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan is not just a legendary wrestler, but he is also among the strongest competitors ever. Nobody will ever forget that memorable image from Wrestlemania III. With his broad shoulders, powerful pectoral and chest muscles, and huge arms, he epitomizes the wrestler. Because he embodies the wrestling archetype, it might be difficult to remember just how big he is—6 feet 6 inches and 330 pounds—at times.

Vader

The fact that Vader was never the WWE World Champion is arguably one of the worst examples of booking. Leon White, who arrived from WCW where he had held the top position, was a giant of a wrestling villain at 6 feet 5 inches and 456 pounds. He was ultimately a victim of his time, when the likes of Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Undertaker, and Kevin Nash were to hold the crown, despite having many fantastic matches and feuds. Vader’s hopes were certainly over when Stone Cold and later the Rock were born.

The Undertaker

What else is there to be said in this succinct mini-biography? There aren’t many wrestling legends, but Mark Calaway has a strong case for making the list. It is frightening to consider what would have happened in 1990 if wrestling fans had turned away the 6′ 10″ and 328 lb. Undertaker. Without a doubt, wrestling would have been far worse. Naturally, they didn’t, and the legend began. His incredible presence and talent are attested to by his Wrestlemania streak alone.

Yokozuna

Yokozuna, one of the biggest World Champions in WWE history, was a well-liked heel in the decade of the 1990s. It is hard to imagine that it has been more than ten years since his passing, and regrettably he is not the only Anoa’i family member to have passed away too soon. Yokozuna, who stood 6 feet 6 inches and weighed 589 pounds, was another instantly recognised superstar. In addition to having two world championships, he was also the 1993 Royal Rumble champion and a tag team champion with the late Owen Hart. Yokozuna finally had to quit the WWE due to weight issues, and he went to compete on the independent circuit. However, he would have a heart attack and pass away at the age of 34 in Liverpool, England.

Andre The Giant

A genuine ring legend. There are wrestlers that are bigger, heavier, stronger, and more technically adept than Andre the Giant, but there aren’t many of them. There may not be a larger scene in contemporary wrestling than that at Wrestlemania III, which is instantly recognised. Andre’s condition, which had contributed to his gigantic girth, was starting to have an impact by the late 1980s. His body simply gave out at 500 pounds and frequent drinking, and he passed away from a heart attack in Paris on January 27, 1993, only at 46 years old.
