The legacy42: Big Bossman/Bubba Rogers

He was big in his own way being an important part of many angles in pro-wrestling starting from Mega Powers with Hogan/Savage to fighting off the Heenan Family to Dungeon of Doom in WCW to Corporation/Ministry to messing Big Show's dad's funeral to feeding Al Snow his own dog before disappearing in 2000 from the main shows. Having challenged Hogan for the title right until challenging Big Show, he has been around for 15 years.

How do you see his legacy with his one UWF world heavyweight title, four hardcore title and one tag title run with the world's most dangerous man?

I always felt like he was a missed opportunity.

He was solid on the mic, great in the ring, had amazing insensitivity and great execution.

Yeah and he was booked accordingly, Al Snow's dog or Show's Father. He was also around for most of the 90's around the main arc of the show but I wonder why they never put any title on him like I/C other than hardcore title and why he took a backseat come 2000.

Re: The legacy42: Big Bossman/Bubba Rogers

legend to me despite not being a main player for long. When he was at his heaviest in the late 80s it was incredible how agile he was. Good talker, good worker and although he was around for a long long time I never got tired of him. He was used right, he was never shoved down your throat in his later years and just kind of fitted in with the corporation without being a main guy.
