True Giants in WWE and other sports
With the Royal Rumble last week and with me not having really watched wrestling in a while some discussion arises. We talk about those giants in the ring. When you look at them compared to each other you don’t really appreciate how giant these guys really are. In this, I’m going to detail two of the biggest wrestlers in WWE right now and some more giants of men we all know and one you probably don’t.
It’s actually kind of hard to find a picture that does this man justice for how big he is. He usually only wrestles other massive human beings just so he doesn’t hurt the other guy in the ring. So what does this guy come from? Well, his real name is Adam Scherr and he doesn’t have much of a record outside of wrestling. Oh yeah, actually he was a beast before he got into WWE winning the NAS US Amateur National Championships in 2011, the Arnold Amateur Strongman Championships in 2012 which got him invited to the Arnold Classic for 2013. He also got 5th in SCL-North n Championships and 7th in the Giants Live event in Poland.
Here pretty much sums up why I like the guy.
How big is he you ask? 6’8′ 383lbs and is 33 years old. As a comparison, The Mountain from Game of Thrones is 6’9″ and listed at 408lbs
The Big Show
Paul Donald Wight II actually started his life just like Andre The Giant did with a disease called acromegaly. It is one that makes your body produce excessive growth hormone after your growth plates have been completed. Mr. Wight was over 6’2″ at the age of 12 with a full batch of chest hair and ring in at 220lbs. This man at 19 was brought in to Wichita State to play some basketball listed at 7’1″.
What an awesome picture. At that same time, he had successful surgery to stop the hormone from producing in 1991. Some stats on his body 22E shoe size, a 64-inch chest, with a ring size sitting at 22, I think mine is like a 14. Wight also played football in high school but quit after his freshman year because he butted heads with the coach. The very next year he joined up with the cheerleading squad citing it “the greatest experience of my life… everybody else was riding a bus with sweaty equipment and I’m in a van with seven cheerleaders who are all learning about life”.
So How Big is this Guy? He is 44 listed at 7′ and 450lbs. Shaquille O’Neal 7’1″ and 325lbs yeah that’s playing weight he is 100% over 4 bills now.
I think that MMA fans will recognize this guy. He started out his career as a kickboxer and eventually came into MMA. The South Korean-born goes by Che Man which means Techno Goliath, Korean Monster, and Korean Colossus. This guy outside the ring is actually a supermodel and rapper in Korea.
Here is a bit of his rapping it’s really hard not to watch. It really makes me miss the Pride entrances back in the day.
He is actually a big TV star in Korea now but still puts them on again just fighting in Sep. 2016.
How Big is This Guy? He is 7’2″ and tips the scales at tips the scales at 346 in his last fight. The Undertake is listed at 6’10” and 300lbs.
Mark William Calaway on Texas Wesleyan University basketball team.
This guy isn’t going to be very well known by most but this is John Krahn and he enrolled at Georgia Prep Sports Academy. He is there to work out drop some weight, keep his eligibility for college and get all the training that he will need to further his opportunities in football. It’s actually hard to find a whole lot on the guy besides his recruiting stats from early 2016.
How Big is This Guy? As you can see above he is Massive. Zach Banner a USC offensive linemen is 6’9″ and 360 lbs.
As you all can see like I can Kids nowadays are getting bigger and bigger. It must be the steroids in the cows. It makes sports more fun to watch and I can wait to see the next crop of Humongous kids that are coming up now.
I talked about it so here is my favorite one.
