Professional Wrestling is a combination of so many type of people, we have the little men and then you have the big men. The little men are seen as the most talented because of their small body stature which makes them to be free and light to bump around the ring in the Ring, they can bump around the ring Ansel the moves to make the match look even better they are also responsible for making the big man look as good as they do in the ring. The big men are the heavyweights they are always seen as special attractions although some of them are great wrestlers but most of them are seen as just big attractions that are there to make money for the business as the promoters always love to promote big men. Because of their oversized stature they cannot always bump around the ring or move very easily as the little man or sell moves like the little men in fact most of there great moves are as a result of the little men selling the big moves as to make the big men look great. Among those big men some of them stands out and we are going to talk about one of them probably the best of them all.
