43.  Bam Bam Bigelow

A graduate of Larry Sharpe’s “Monster Factory”, no other graduate fit the bill of a monster better than “The Beast from the East”, Bam Bam Bigelow.  He was a large man (nearly 400 lbs) and though he wasn’t the first of his size in the business, he was the first to debut such incredible agility.

As Bam Bam Bigelow progressed, he wasn’t just a big man who could fly; he became a wrestler who could also work.  He carried Lawrence Taylor to a match ten times better than it had any right to be at Wrestlemania XI, though he may have sacrificed his career in the WWF to do it.  He was never used at the high level he probably should have been after that.  Bigelow’s work was vastly underrated and time will tell if he will ever receive the appreciation he deserved.
