Jerry Blackwell

He was named the “Man Mountain” from Stone Mountain (Georgia) and at 5 ft 9 and well over 400 pounds, Jerry Blackwell fit that bill.   Blackwell may have had physical dimensions that may have reflected someone who was not athletic, but in Blackwell’s prime he was quite mobile and competed in Strongest Man competitions.  There was a time when he was one of the top faces (and draws) for the AWA and had he not had issues with health (obesity caught up to him), he may have had a more productive career.  Still as someone who was a key part of the AWA when it mattered, he might be worthy of consideration.
