10 fat, former pro wrestlers (not named Andre) that were pretty good

With current WWE superstars, such as Kevin Owens, Bray Wyatt, and Samoa Joe having a physique, unlike most modern pro-wrestlers, I started thinking of others that made an impact on the business.

Though fat wrestlers are pretty rare these days, they use to be very common. In fact, it was harder than I thought narrowing it down to these 10.

So, to help narrow it down, I decided to start from 1990 and only select guys that are either no longer with us, retired and not named Andre.
