Early wrestling was dull. Wrestling aficionados enjoyed this new unorthodox sport that was gaining popularity worldwide.

Promoters promoted good shooters to the main event to give the sport respectability.

While shooting is banned in pro wrestling, fans liked straight shooters’ surprise twists and turns. Using giants and bodybuilders gave these matches gravitas.

Many of these giants helped wrestling promotions gain income.

Giant Gonzales, Giant Silva, Andre the Giant, and Do Reis packed venues. Japan’s wrestling fans were willing to pay anything to see these giants in action.

Giants’ popularity has dropped, but they remain an important component of professional wrestling, so we’ll continue to see them.

10. Big Cass: 7’0

Average-sized athletes dominated the WWE for years, and giant-sized athletes appeared to be on their way out. Big Cass and Braun Strowman emerge in the 2010s to put the locker room on notice.

Despite what happened, many wrestling fans want to see one of the best duos soon.

9. Kurrgan: 7’0“

From the beginning, wrestling promotions have been enamoured with the size, so the WWE signing Kurrgan wasn’t a surprise (Robert Maillet). WWE hoped Kurrgan’s career would be successful, given his size, but he was a terrible wrestler.

Kurrgan joined The Truth Commission in 1997.

WWF dispatched the group to the developmental areas to hone their skills. After a short period in the regions, the group was promoted to the main roster. Maillet chose the moniker The Interrogator.

Maillet was called Kurrgan the Interrogator by WWE. Under Jackyl’s instruction, Kurrgan the Interrogator became a heel with the Iron Claw.

The Big Bang, Monster Brawl, Percy Jackson’s: Sea of Monsters and Deadpool 2 also starred Maillet.

8. Big Show: 7’0“

The Big Show’s failure as a monster/wrestling behemoth has been debated. The Big Show often looked like a big guy. The Big Show is no Andre the Giant, Kane, or Great Khali.

The WWE would have avoided angles and stories that made him look weak, including tearful sequences.

7. Kane: 7’0“

The Big Red Machine was a respected wrestler in his heyday. Kane’s passion for his persona and dominance made him a renowned 90s wrestler. Kane was the first wrestler to threaten The Undertaker’s dominance in the WWE and became a WWE staple.

Kane’s gimmick changed over the years, but he always gave 110% in the ring. Kane provided us with fantastic bouts that we can all look back on and agree were great.

6. The Great Khali: 7’1“

7’1″ At his best, Punjabi Playboy was unstoppable in WWE. Khali never had legendary fights, but he was invincible, which made him remarkable.

The Great Khali’s career highlight was the 20-man battle royal.

He won and became the world heavyweight champion. The Great Khali is one of the few to beat the Undertaker in under 10 minutes.

The Great Khali later feuded with John Cena. His on-and-off feud with Mysterio stood out more than his feud with Cena.

Their diverse wrestling styles made their matches fascinating despite size differences. Rey Mysterio spent the bout trying to pin The Great Khali.

The Great Khali was sometimes too powerful, despite his successes. The WWE turned The Great Khali into a ludicrous figure, making him one of the worst wrestlers of all time.

The Great Khali’s wrestling career thereafter declined sharply and ended prematurely.

5. Ron Reis/The Yeti: 7’2“

Ron Reis was a WCW star noted for his two-handed chokeslam. WCW tried to make Ron Reis an icon, but none of his gimmicks caught on.

WCW also tried to change Ron Reis’ gimmick by dressing him like a ninja. The new gimmick was discontinued after three appearances, as planned.

Reis became Big Ron Studd, a gimmick similar to his trainer’s. This new figure was accepted by fans, but Bobby Heenan, Big John Studd’s former manager, disapproved.

Ron Reis left WCW after three years. Ron Reis entered the Indie scene and toured Japan as Big Bomb Jones, a Big John Studd-inspired character.

Don Reis rejoined TCW in 2003.

4. Giant Silva: 7’2“

Giant Silva has attempted basketball, wrestling, and MMA. Giant Gonzalez, 7’2, played basketball for Brazil.

In 1997, Gonzalez turned pro and signed with the WWF.

Giant Gonzalez joined The Oddities as a cornerman in the WWF. Giant Silva’s wrestling career failed, and the WWE dropped him in 1999.

Giant Silva signed with CMLL as Gigante Silva.

Giant Silva signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling a few years later, then Hustle. In 2008, Giant Silva gave up wrestling for MMA.

Silva signed with Dream Stage Entertainment in 2003 and participated in PFC. Giant Silva won two UFC battles through submission and lost six via submission and knockout.

3. Omos: 7’3“

Omos is the third tallest wrestler of all time, the youngest WWE wrestler, and the only New Age wrestler to make the top 5. Omos, a Nigerian basketball star, switched to pro wrestling.

Omos joined WWE in 2019 and spent months in the Performance Center.

Omos spent his early months honing his talents before making his in-ring debut in July.

Omos debuted on Monday Night Raw in June 2020 as a part of Akira Tozawa’s Ninja group. During a tag team bout against The Viking Raiders and The Street Profits, WWE commentary called Omos the giant ninja.

Omos debuted at Wrestlemania in April with AJ Styles versus The New Day.

2. Andre the Giant: 7’4“

Andre the Giant was a popular favourite owing to his height and weight. Andre the Giant is still considered a heavyweight legend.

Andre the Giant had gigantism and acromegaly as a child. At 12, Andre the giant was 6’3.

Rousimoff began wrestling in France, where he met Canadian Promoter Frank Valois, who became his manager.

Before migrating to Canada, Andre the Giant wrestled in Japan. Many promoters ran out of opponents for Andre the Giant when he was wrestling in Canada. Valois consulted Vince McMahon.

Vince McMahon suggested presenting Andre the Giant as a monster.

He proposed renaming Rousimoff Andre the Giant. McMahon also suggested eliminating manoeuvres like Andre the Giant’s drop kick.

Vince McMahon, Sr. increased Andre the Giant’s demand, and he travelled the world for months before making his WWF debut.

Andre the Giant was a force in the WWE in the 1970s and 1980s. Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan headlined Wrestlemania 1987. Andre the Giant won his sole World Heavyweight title.

1. Giant Gonzales: 8″

Giant Gonzales is the tallest WWE wrestler at 8 feet. Giant Gonzales made his pro wrestling debut for ECW in 1990 as El Gigante.

After a few months with ECW, Giant Gonzales became a main eventer.

Fans were impressed with EL Gigante since towering behemoths were popular at the time. Giant Gonzales left WCW for WWE.

Gonzalez turned heel in WWE and was mentored by Harvey Wippleman, a despised manager at the time.

Giant Gonzalez debuted in WWE in 1993 and defeated The Undertaker. Gonzalez would then fight The Undertaker. Gonzalez lost both bouts.

Gonzalez was dismissed from WWE in 1993.
