Default Heaviest Current Superstars?

I'm not sure about on NXT (which I'd like to know), but I was curious how many Superstars WWE currently has under employment that's over 275 lbs. The only guys I can think of are Big Show (441 lbs), Kane (323 lbs), Khali (347 lbs), Mark Henry (418 lbs), Big E (290 lbs), Ryback (291 lbs),and Jack Swagger (281 lbs).

Are there any I'm missing?

Also, was there ever a highflyer in the WWE that was billed at over 250 lbs?

How do you feel about their utilization of heavier Superstars? I've noticed a trend where they kinda purposely make them fight slower. For a better part of 2013 Swagger was fighting like he was this hulking obese guy with arthritis and was incredibly slow compared to how he fought in 2012 (thank God they're getting him out of that trend)

whoops forgot the wyatt family members (i think at least rowan) and tons of funk

Vader and Bam Bam Bigelow were incredibly agile for guys so huge. As for the current roster, I'd imagine Sheamus is pretty close to the 275 mark. He's a big boy.

Ahhh, I forgot Sheamus!
I've only seen a couple snippets of Vader's matches (a shame, I know) and I have yet to watch any of Bam Bam Bigelow, but I'll have to look into them more. I find it really interesting when the WWE actually uses the bigger guys for more than just being the "big guy".

Brodus Clay & Tensai?

Tensai is another one in the class of a big guy who can move quickly

Oh my God how could I forget the tag team titled "Tons of Funk".

Tensai is incredibly agile for someone his size. Just wish he could show it off more. It looks like the only larger guy they're allowing to show agility is Big E for some reason.

I don't remember much about Bam Bam or Vader's WWF/E run. Might be better to scope Vader's WCW matches, he was a beast.

Jimmy Snuka was huge during his prime. He was probably over 250 at some point.

This is a good suggestion. Vader didn't do too much in WWF. For a really good time, had on to YouTube and fine some of his matches from Japan.

I'll be doing just that, then! Any matches in particular you would recommend?
