Who are the best big guys in the ring today ? And should WWE try to find more of them ?

And by big i mean tall, around 6ft 6-7in(198cm). Part timers count, all that matters is if they had a match recently and i ranked them based on their latest matches (So no Undertaker first for me even if he had multiple ***** in his career). In my opinion the list goes :
1.Luke Harper
2.The Undertaker
3.Baron Corbin/Jack Swagger
4.Big Cass
5.Kane
6.Eric Rowan
7.Big show
8.Titus O'neil
9.Braun Strownman

Its a shame actually that except Harper now there isnt a new big guy who would make people go "holy fuck"like Undertaker back in the day. What is your opinion about those type of wrestlers, i personally love those type of wrestlers and i find it a bit sad that most of the new ones arent that good or are booked badly (harper my dear). I would actually gladly take a dominant Baron corbin destroying the roster Like Kane and Taker back in the days or just a new talented guy who would have been booked good from day 1.

From this era Luke Harper is the only one who can work with pretty much everybody.

Though Baron Corbin is improving fast. I could see Corbin being the big man to watch in the next 3-5 years.

It amazes me that Luke Harpers stats in terms of height and weight isn't too far off what The Rock was billed at.

But yeah, Luke Harper is an outstanding wrestler for his size and really should be a lot more than just a member of a stable.

Yeah,guy could work with a complete repackage and just add someone else to the wyatts.

He could have easily had a Diesel-like gimmick

None of them are good. No good big-man worker is taking bumps and getting owned by people like zayn, bryan or kalisto. Ryback lost to kalisto. That instantly buries him. Harper just jobs out to midgets all the time too. The monster stables of big guys in the wyatt family all jobbing out to people like bryan or some other midget? Yeh that is terrible. No good big man worker just lets himself get man handled by midgets. So they all suck.

Current top 3:
1, Roman Reigns - THE GUY
2, Seth Rollins - The unbeaten champion
3, Kevin Owens

All time favorites:
1, Stone cold
2, HHH
3, Kevin Nash

Luke Harper is a fantastic worker, I can't recall the last time he's ever failed to deliver. But he's 37 years old, if they're going to get him away from the Wyatt gimmick and repackage him, they need to do it in 2016.

Baron Corbin is coming up though, and he's also talented. He'll be pushed to the moon.

Edit: Goddammit, GTFO CoolestDude, and read some flash cards, you pissbucket troll.

Anyway, Ryback losing to Kalisto was one of the few things they booked right this year.

Fine. If you want to bury ryback and build kalisto then do this. But niether has happened. Ryback is still the one being pushed. So what was the point of ruining him by having him job to kalisto.

1, Roman Reigns - THE GUY
2, Seth Rollins - The unbeaten champion
3, Kevin Owens
