You cannot believe it is neither wrestling legend, Andre the Giant nor ‘World’s strongest man’ Mark Henry. Even great wrestlers like Yokozuna, Big Show, Vader, Big Daddy V, Bam Bam Bigelow, Man Mountain Mike, Haystacks Calhoun, Loch Ness and The McGuire Twins are not on top of the list.
We were surprised to know that the heaviest WWE star was Happy Humphrey, who weighed over 800 pounds.
Happy Humphrey was almost 300 pounds extra than Andre The Giant. That is almost the double of Big Show. And believe it or not Happy Humphrey was was even heavier than two-time champion Yokozuna.
According to Slam Sports, Humphrey in 1953 wrestled a bear for about 28 minutes. He would work on a farm, and thus was known as Happy Farmer Humphrey as well.
His real name was William Joseph Cobb and was born on July 16, 1926. Humphrey was about 6 ft 1 inch in height. He used the ring name ‘Happy Humphrey’ after a fat comic strip character named Humphrey Pennyworth. On March 14, 1989, Humphrey died of a heart attack. (Main Image: Youtube/WWE).
