If over 300 pounds counts Hogan, here they are in no particular order...

Hogan, Andre, Big Show, Vader and Bigelow.

On the flip side which big men royally sucked balls? No jobbers- must have had a real push at sometime.

El Gigante

That discussion begins and ends with El Gigante.  And as if he wasn't shitty enough to begin with, my god, that outfit he had to wear in the Whiff??  I had to look away.

I'll make a half-assed attempt at a top 10. Just trying to keep this at guys who were 350 plus for the majority of their career, and who were pushed as super heavyweights... which eliminates Dusty, Hanson, Adrian Adonis, Ernie Ladd and DLJ.

1. Andre - The original super heavyweight, before his injuries could really work, huge draw, personality to burn. As a heel even though he could barely move he was still scary as hell.

2. Vader - Wrestling's version of a final boss in a video game. Huge runs in Japan, Europe, US. Probably the best big man worker for me.

3. Big Show - Long run on top, usually a main eventer (except when Vince was burying him for gaining too much weight). Strong runs in WWE and WCW.

4. Bam Bam Bigelow - Agile, Great look, but always seemed to be missing something for me. I'd argue he came around a decade too early - I could easily see him getting at least the same run in 2000's WWE as....

5. Mark Henry - Rough start to his career, once he had someone write him as a serious character his work really picked up. His Hall of Pain run and retirement swerve with Cena were some of his best work

6. Jerry Blackwell - Less intimidating than some others on the list but could work his ass off when healthy. Underrated on the mic. My memories of him are when he could barely move.

7. King Kong Bundy - Scared the shit out of me when I was a kid (which he got a really big kick out of when I met him) Never the best worker, but got 3 main event runs in WWF, which is more than I can say for One Man Gang

8. Yokozuna: Had he managed to only stay down around 500 lbs. Could really move for a man carrying that much girth. Once they turned him face he was finished in WWE.

9. Abdullah the Butcher - Didn't really see him until his first WCW run with Sullivan and Cactus. Couldn't work worth a lick in my opinion, but he made a nice living for himself.

10. Earthquake - By the time he had his big run I was a heel fan. Could work when he had to, and the Hogan Angle made him. Had no idea who he was so the angle with him Bravo and Warrior in 1989 popped me huge.

I had forgotten One Man Gang until Broke mentioned him. I liked his a lot. Akeem sucked, but OMG was bad ass.

I was thinking of leaving Abby off and having Gang at 10. Gang was bad ass in Texas and Mid South. Could swap him with Quake too but I liked Tenta as a worker better.

Quake was cool, watching his work now I enjoy it more than I did at the time.

Might be perception but the Gorilla I grew up with was the Prime Time host - It's hard for me to go back and take him seriously as a monster when I hear him spouting off Gorilla-isms in the back of my mind. I need to watch more of his stuff from the 70's. Ditto Calhoun.

Cheex might not be top 10 but he'll always be in the top 1000.
