It was late at night and I didn't catch what channel I was watching, but they aired a Tiger Jeet Singh documentary up here in Ontario a couple of nights ago.  What amazes me is that I ALWAYS remembered Singh working face in North America; while the footage and shots all portray an absolutely insane heel in Japan. 

What also struck me as funny was how Singh never really had much of a physique in his earleir years - I mean yes he was big but didn't have much definition.  I found the later shots of him 'post 45' showed him actually cut a bit. 

They seemed to break kayfabe at times, but for the most part old Tiger was still trying to protect the business...

Anyone else see this docu?

I contributed many of the stills to that, was a good job she did, just sold the promo tape on e-bay, they originally showed it on CBC IIRC

Singh was a Sheik/Abdullah style psycho "gaijin" heel in Japan. You are right, while he was kind of a "big" guy, he never had a weight lifting/athletic type body back in the '70s/80s.
