211. Ox Baker

To people who are unfamiliar with the wacky world of Professional Wrestling, would it be probable that they think that all wrestlers look like Ox Baker?  With a shaved head, bushy eyebrows and a menacing Fu Manchu, Ox Baker looked every bit his catch phrase of “I Like to Hurt People”.  Baker was not the most fluid of wrestlers and he may actually be more known for his film and television appearances than he was in the wrestling ring.  Still, with that look how could Ox Baker be out of place in any professional wrestling Hall of Fame?
