This thread is for giants who couldn't work their eay out of a paper bag.

Basically they looked imposing, were gigantic men who Vince thought were gauranteed money, and who he forgot needed to be trained to wrestle.

My first pick:

Nathan Jones. The 7ft 350 pound bodybuilder/strongman from Australia who did 8 years in Prison from age 16-24.

He might be the most imposing looking wrestler Vince ever hired.

His heart really wasn't in it however, and he performed like a lumbering dinosaur unsure of what move come next. Also was known for being stiff and dangerous for his opponent in the ring.

Now days he's a character actor in a bunch of movies. Not a star, but makes a decent living acting in an environment that can do multiple takes.

Did you just imply that real acting is in any way comparable to pro fucking wrestling?

This guy Andy Slocum.

The guy is a total douche bag in real life apparently, and couldn't work at all. Basically stayed in FCW the whole time.

He was quite possibly the tallest muscular guy WWE has ever hired. Ron Reis size skeleton + bodybuilder. How could Vince resist at least giving him a try?

That guy was stupid big. The guy next to in this screen cap is Lance Hoyt (vance archer), and he himself is billed 6'9". That guy has to be like 7'4" or some shit. Looks like a Steiner&Ron Reis hybrid is right... too bad he had the reverse combination of mental attributes. Steiner personality and Reis working ability.

The Great Khali, undoubtedly the worst wrestler to be ever given a top title run in all of history.

>Couldn't wrestle
>Could barely even walk unaided
>Couldn't speak a word of English
>Literally forgot the rules of wrestling mid match on several occasions
>Only real "attributes" was that he was really tall, and Indian
>>
>>2146501
He couldn't speak any language
>>
>>2146501
He was fine, WWE just ran him way past his novelty. He should have been fed to someone and future endevored before the Punjabi Playboy and comedy run
>>
>>2146501
>>2146374
>>2146419


All that considered how the hell did Khali have a much longer career than Slocum?

Slocum was the same height and didn't have the disfigured look either.

Regardless of how much of an asshole he was, he was better in the ring than Khali...

The story was printed on TMZ like 5 years ago. They said he has two fiances and one was Rosa Mendez and he was beating the shit out of her all the time.

Found this in another forum, possibly a friend of Slocums? I'd say fan, but he didn't have any fans.

wtf i love rictus erectus now?
>>
>>2146721

Yeah Jones has a pretty good acting career. Not like the Rock, or "Star" tier, but he can make a living doing it. List of stuff he's been in on imdb.

The funny thing is he's not even close to the shape he used to be in, but it doesn't matter because when you're 7 feet tall you pretty much get work as long as you can stand upright.
>>
>>2146341
But that's fucking wrong, retard.
>>
>>2146419

Now if he would have had the working ability of Steiner and the Friendly easy to work with attitude of Reis then he would be champion right now. Fuck, Reis size version of Steiner is a terrifying concept. Look at the cannon-ball shoulders on this guy.

WTF is it that the most impressive physical specimens have to be shitheads?
>>

>Big Show, Nathan Jones, A-Train, Matt Morgan, Brock Lesnar stable

Oh boy, if this stable were in 2016 they'd be booed to oblivion.
>>
>>2146758
Why dont fans today like the big guys?
>>
>>2146743

Because a 7'2" man like Slocum hasn't ever had to work a day in his life, let alone in the ring.

His physical is all from steroids. Sure he lifts, but bodybuilders on roids can get away with fluff and pump exercises and still get jacked with minimal effort.

Wonder how slocum went to college? He got a scholarship to play basket as a center. At 7'2" how much skill does that require. He also got booted when he got caught distribution of extacy.

This is s guy who's big fucking skeleton have him everything in life, totally un-earned, just like the Steroid muscles he pilled on top of his big skeleton.

Now the guy is probably still working as a highly paid bodyguard, wears a vest under a giant suit, and just stands there and looks tough.

Even dating and sex probably came easy to him. Ok looking face, + height&frame + roids and girls probably assume he has 16" dick.

You will NEVER see a 7'2" 370 pound Steroided up bodybuilder succeed in the WWE today (and that's a good thing), OR ANY walk of life that requires effort or respecting people. His entire life has been built on things he didn't earn. He has no concept of struggle, and no shame in doing anything the easy way.

MANLET DETECTED LOL
>>
>>2146823

Regardless, prove the point wrong
>>
>>2146797
Because they tend to be shit in the ring. It's like everything, younger talents push things forward and do more impressive things. Imagine seeing a suicide dive for the first time. From then on, a double axe handle from the middle rope just isn't exciting. Unfortunately for big guys, they can't safely do many flashy moves, so they still have to wrestle the older looking style.

That was Nathan Jones alright. Probably had to refilm it a dozen times until he'd sell it
>>
>>2146797
because they're beta manlets themselves who got bullied in highschool and can't stand the big alpha jocks becoming big stars no matter how talented they are. Case in point: Roman Reigns.

Dan Matha is his Second Coming

>>2146841

He wasn't too bad in Mua Thai Giant. It was in netflix for a while. He wasn't really in shape for it though
>>
>>2146848
Remember his big hyped debut? Then Joe just comes out and kills him.
>>
>>2146839

So basically the business is overrun with Spot Monkeys?
>>
>>2146862
Yeah. Kind of. Look at the CW division. They can't wrestle the cruiser weight style, because so many of the main eventers do the exact same style.
>>
>>2146871

So basically a guy like prime Hulk Hogan would never make it in today's environment?
>>
>>2146890
Prime Hulk would be Roman Reigns
>>
>>2146890
Nah theres no hogans in the biz. Killing the territioes affected charisma and mic skills. Let alone psychology. Most workers are from tthe indys or trained by Wwe.

Njpw traniess go to excursion to get better, they don't do that for factory made guys from WWE.

Ajpw or Bjpw are the only feds with actual heavies.

Most Njpw guys are below the weight limit, junior or Uwfi style bodies. Okada is tall but won't even bulk up like most used to do.
>>
>>2146857
That was the point. They were building up Joe destroying jobbers so Regal could give him a rematch
>>
>>2146932
I know that was the point, I just thought it was funny, they didn't hype up any of the other jobbers Joe destroyed.
>>
>>2144733

Vince saw him and shouted "HE's PERFECT, PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!"
