Bam Bam Bigelow was one of the bigger stars during the 80s and 90s, especially in WWE, which was known as the WWF back then. He was a huge man and many fans were always in awe of his size and stature. That being said, it seems Beglow was dragged for his lack of talent recently.

Bam Bam Bigelow competed in several pro wrestling promotions between 1985 and 2006, including ECW, WCW, and WWE/WWF. The star was most famous for his match against former American football player Lawrence Taylor at WrestleMania XI, which turned out to be much better than expected.

While speaking on Rene Dupree’s Cafe de Rene podcast, Randy Savage’s brother Lanny Poffo blasted Bam Bam Bigelow for his attitude during his time in WWE. He also proceeded to drag Bigelow for his lack of actual talent.

“I didn’t like Bam Bam whatsoever. I thought he was genuinely the least talented wrestler ever to get a push. Boy, did it go to his head. But I will give him credit for one thing. I understand in the last years of his life, some building caught on fire and he went into the building and saved two kids, so good for him.


I said, ‘I have made a bad career choice here, and I gotta do a job for this unmarketable, fat piece of crap that couldn’t get over if his hair were on fire.’ You know he had a tattoo of a flame. I said, ‘I wouldn’t pay to see that guy no matter what he was gonna do.’ But give him credit, boy, didn’t he have a great match with that football player.”

In 2007, Bigelow passed away at the age of 45 following a drug overdose. Many fans find it shocking that Bigelow still has not been inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame yet. We’ll have to see whether Bigelow will be inducted in the future.
