The 30 best big men in wrestling history

#29 Haystacks Calhoun

A household name at the peak of his popularity, Haystacks Calhoun's uncommon girth made him a major box-office attraction throughout the 1950s and ’60s. Born in Morgan’s Corner, Ark., in 1934, the 600-pounder stayed true to his farm boy roots during his career, sporting a white T-shirt and blue overalls in battles against rivals like Mr. Fuji and the 800-pound Happy Humphrey. This unique look made the behemoth a sensation in many different promotions, but his biggest success in WWE came in 1973 when he captured the World Tag Team Championships with Tony Garea, making him the heaviest man to ever hold that title.
