Default John Tenta aka Earthquake

He was one of the most underrated "Big Men" of all time in my opinion. He was a classic heel, and his feud with Jake The Snake Roberts was one of my favorites of all time. His work with other wrestlers like The Ultimate Warrior wasn't that bad either considering how awful of a worker Warrior could be in the ring. Granted he was a gimmick in the WWE, and feel like he is one of the best "Big Men" of all time. Easily in my top 5. What says you?

He was one of my favorite guys in all the old school battle royals they'd do every so often. He always worked well with big and small men. Never doing a whole lot of actual wrestling just better than most in the psychology category.

I know for a fact he was able to DROPKICK people (Can't remember wich matches but saw him doing it more than once) no easy feat for a man his size.

That is awesome. Tenta had lost considerable weight in that pic from his 500 lbs days.

Whenever Kitao tried to shoot on him he handled that situation like a true pro.

I loved his promos when he used to be bouncing from side to side and jimmy hart was ranting and raving. His finishing move was awesome too.
