Gaining, Gaining & gaining the most pleasure-giving word for our heaviest WWE Wrestlers. Moreover, everyone wants to eat every delicious food available in this world but no one wants to have the weight gained from it. This is not the case for our Heaviest WWE Wrestlers, they like to eat, eat & eat until they become bulky & giant as a tank and to be very frank they do not even care about the gained weight. Because as heavy, giant or obese you can be more difficult is to hit you, displace you & with the more massless pain you have. The great game of wrestling has witnessed many heavy wrestlers coming & going, they have graced the game & increased the competition, entertainment level & fun in WWE.
Here is the list of HeaviestWWE Wrestlers who ever graced this game:
10. Andre The Giant (520 pounds)
Tenth on the list of Heaviest WWE Wrestlers is Andre, he was evaluated as 520 pounds, is one of the most famous wrestlers in history. He was an absolute legend. He won many hearts not only in wrestling but also for his role in “The Princess Bride” and several other movies. Tales of his drinking and eating habits were well-known.
Andre’s weight was changing but not with huge magnitude, but as said before the thing that had to go his way was because of his mammoth weight.
9. Haystacks Calhoun (601 pounds)
Ninth on the list of Heaviest WWE Wrestlers is Haystacks, he was one of the famous wrestlers of his time. He was a 601-pound huge man who somehow still managed to keep his cool. One of the first heaviest wrestlers who graced the game. Some people say that he weighed 300 pounds by the time he was 14 years old.
One of the reasons for Calhoun’s success has he actually had a wide variety of grappling moves, and for a person who was over 600 pounds, can easily finish opponents just like that. His finishing move was called the Big Splash.

8. Man Mountain Mike (623 pounds)
Eighth on the list of Heaviest WWE Wrestlers is Man Mountain Mike. A huge man who wrestled with his 623 pounds weight is something commendable. He can eat buffet before training with Al Lovelock to kick-start his wrestling. He would then make a tag team with the big man Haystacks Calhoun, the duo combined touching the scales more than 1,200 pounds. Neither the wrestler could fit on the apron, so the non-active partner would have to stand inside the ring.
Man Mountain Mike was a part of the WWWF in the 1970s, the predecessor to the WWE, where he clubbed up with another big man Jerry Blackwell. He most of the time wrestled barefooted and would finish off his opponents with a big splash, kind of a common thing for a man like him. He died in 1998 due to blood clots after a cut on his leg became infected.
7. Yokozuna (641 pounds)
Seventh on the list of Heaviest WWE Wrestlers is Yokozuna. One of the most dangerous big men we’ve seen since Andre The Giant and another wrestler who kept on rising during the course of his career. Earlier, he was 550 lbs when he won the WWE title from Bret Hart, then Hulk Hogan in 1993. He rose to 568 pounds by Summerslam, stops at 589 for a while and was apparently 641 pounds when he won the World Tag Team Title with Owen Hart in 1995.
He was in due course forced to go out of the WWE due to his weight problems and buzzes went around that at that time Yokozuna had broken the 800-pound barrier. He died as a two-time WWE Heavyweight champion aged at 34 and will always be remembered for squeezing opponents with his Bonzai Drop.

6. Maximum Capacity (650 pounds)
Sixth on the list of Heaviest WWE Wrestlers is Maximum Capacity. The rightly named Maximum Capacity was frequently called as the World’s Largest Athlete during his independent career. A wrestler who was 650 pounds of pure mass was something to believe. Earlier he used to work as a bouncer in Florida before coming in wrestling where he worked his way out & wrestled in America, Japan, and Europe.
He always had a dream of wrestling with the big man Yokozuna but never had the opportunity. His life was not as healthy, with enormous weight comes hypertension, asthma, and diabetes. In 2011 he was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and he died 3 years later.
5. Giant Haystacks (685 pounds)
Fifth on the list of Heaviest WWE Wrestlers is Giant Haystacks, he was born in England and wrestled all over the globe. He truly was a giant, not only did he weigh 685 pounds but stood tall with his height almost as 7 feet tall.

Third on the list of Heaviest WWE Wrestlers is Hornswagglin Hillbilly. An indisputable bulkiest man who was at 725 lbs, Hornswagglin’ Hillbilly relished his best years with Juggalo Championship Wrestling. In the course of a match with the 141 pounder Tom Dub, commentators made a joke that Hornswagglin’ Hillbilly had King Kong Bundy (a 458 pounder himself) under his trousers. In that same match the heavy fella struggled to climb the stairs into the ring, then beat the shit of Dub in about 30 seconds finishing match off with a huge splash.
He didn’t trouble to climb on Dub, just stayed in position while the referee counted to three. He has also wrestled in Japan where he was known as Haystacks Calhoun Jr.

At 10 years of age they were already 200 pounds each and that had increased to 600 by the time they were 16. In 1978 Billy was 743, and his Benny was 723, meaning as a tag team they combined to weigh almost 1,500 pounds.
