298. The Missouri Mauler
There aren’t many wrestlers who looked as imposing without doing more than just standing there, than the Missouri Mauler, Larry Hamilton. 

The brother of “The Assassin”, Jody Hamilton, The Missouri Mauler would find success in many tag teams and a singles wrestler in the Mid-West, Carolinas and Florida for over twenty years, predominantly as a heel.  Thick and powerful, the Mauler lived up to his moniker and looked every bit a bad ass.
