Inside The Dungeon of Doom: Kevin Sullivan on wrestling's wackiest group

Loch Ness

By far The Dungeon of Doom’s largest member, the 6-foot-11, 685-pound Loch Ness became a major star in his native England during the 1960s and ’70s. With Kevin Sullivan looking for any dominant force he could find to represent a threat to Hulkamania, The Taskmaster recruited the behemoth to join The Dungeon briefly in 1996, marking Martin Ruane’s only notable United States appearances.

TASKMASTER’S TAKE: I saw him in England and we only had him for a short time, but he drew big ratings consistently for three weeks when he was in the main event. A lot of people think wrestling is Sir Laurence Olivier doing “Hamlet,” but it’s Monty Python doing silly walks. People take it so seriously, but want to see people who are different. Loch Ness was such a big guy, he was an attraction. It was a car wreck. You couldn’t take your eyes off of him. In England, he was a huge star.
