DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Marathon: Bam Bam Bigelow

Today, Karl Stern looks at the Beast from the East.

Bam Bam Bigelow started out his wrestling career as a highly acclaimed student of the Monster Factory. He soon showed up in Memphis with his manager and trainer Larry Sharpe, where he battled Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee, and all the top stars in Memphis for a short period of time.  

From there he spent time in World Class as the ill-named Crusher Yurkov and had a short stint in WCW before he had a couple big runs in WWF, including a WrestleMania main event. He also became a star in Japan and ECW.

Bigelow's career was often marred by injury and jumping from promotion to promotion, but he became one of the best big men in wrestling.

Today's show is about a man who seemed to have tremendous potential and seemed destined to become one of the biggest stars in the world. He had a tremendous look and agility for a big man, but questions remain if he really lived up to his potential.
