Toughest Wrestlers of All Time

(1/1)

kliquehog:
I'd love to see Haku and Brock in a real fight!

DOGALUM:
If we are talking about a "real fight", give me Ken Shamrock over any of those guys.

hvsupastar:
I don't think shamrock could beat any of the guys. Add Andre, Nash, Bradshaw, Steiner to the list as well.

kliquehog:
Haku stories are legendary about him beating up people on the internet.

Whiskeyhog:
Abdullah the Butcher.

hvsupastar:
But to answer the original question its Haku.  Harley Race is 2nd

kliquehog:
1. Haku 2. Race 3. Brock 4. Dick Slater 5. Brody or Terry Gordy

Doug:
How anyone can have a list like this and NOT include Abby boggles the mind. or even Shiekhy Baby...

Haku and Harley Race, IMHO, are neck and neck for 2nd behind Abby.

hvsupastar:
Oh wait, I would put Danny Hodge just behind Haku and in front of Race

TheRazorback500:
Killer Kowalski.

 :razorback:

DeltaBoy:
Race , Dirty Dutch Madel , Dick Murdock , Steve Williams  Ole Anderson

PorkRinds:
How can you not include Mick Foley? 

Jowls:
Ric Flair once said that Roddy Piper was the toughest guy in the business.

More Nuts than Tough.

Bruiser Brody

Dr. Starcs:
Marc Mero

Mr. Wrestling #2:
Terry Funk

Was that before or after Kevin Nash knocked him out with an open hand slap?

Hogfaniam:
Tommy "Wildfire" Rich.  so ugly, he didn't care what happened to his self.  Lawler threw fire on him and improved his looks.

Overtheroadtruckdriver:
Lots of bad opinions in here. 

If we're talking about guys who could seriously hurt other people because they were tougher than the other person or stronger or whatever I don't know how you couldn't vote for Andre first.  He could throttle anyone he wanted to if he wanted to.  As far as other legendary tough guys you'd have to say Danny hodge (pound for pound toughest), bruiser Brody, and maybe mark Henry, whose size ands world class strength alone would seem to make him a pretty good hand full. 

Harley Race could thump some heads as well. 

kliquehog:
Haku evenRace said he would not fight him. Brody also in World Class he  made an example out of Mark Calloway before he was thevUndertaker according to Persy Pringle. He scared Lex Luger also in the ring. Goole it! Most wrestlers say Haku.

Doug:
^^ can anyone interpret that?!

Dr. Starcs:
Maybe a Haiku poem would've been better.

razorbacker3:
Dick the Bruiser from the old AWA. Alex Karras told a story about him that was unreal. He is supposed to have been cut by the Packers in the early 50's because he was hurting too many players. He was a beast, for real.
But, in his prime, Andre the Giant could have hurt most any pro wrestler on that list or any list. He was incredibly strong.

http://perspectivesonwrestling.blogspot.com/2007/10/dick-bruiser-vs-alex-karras-affair.html

Read about it here. And also he was defensive capt. of the Packers.

husker71:
Verne Gagne   my gosh he killed a guy when he was in his 80s

But the other guy was in his 90s lol

husker71:
figured one of you guys would point that out    still it proves that the sleeper hold was not fake as I always thought.

pigture perfect:
Anyone remember Ken Patera? At the time, one of the worlds strongest men, but slow as could be.

TheRazorback500:

I remember him. He tore a biceps tendon in the late 80s and was never really the same. He wrestled in the old AWA.

TheRazorback500:
Big John Studd and Maniac Mark Lewin were a couple more tough guys I remember.

 :razorback:

hvsupastar:
Wasn't Ken Petera the guy Ric Flair was trying to be as big as at first?

GuvHog:
Andre' the Giant no doubt about it.

In an interview after Andre' passed away, Huck Hogan, who wrestled Andre', stated "No man on this earth would have ever beaten Andre' if he didn't agree to lose, he was just too big and too strong".

The Chief:
I've read that Rick Rude knocked out a couple of guys back stage with the meanest non kayfabee open hand slap in the business at the time.

Motley Que:
How does  Lou Thez get left off of a list like this.  I ounce heard Terry Funk say on the Jim Ross Podcast that the original Sheik actually hid in a bus when he found out he was booked to wrestle Lou.

I've heard too many wrestlers say that Scott Steiner was more bark than bite & that he was scared poo-less of his bro Rick and Ron Simmons.

I heard Ric Flair tell a story that Black Jack Mulligan basically bitch-slapped Harley Race and Race did nothing in return.

Don't ask Dr. David Shultz if wrestling is fake.

No doubt. 

secthumper:
Bruiser Bob Sweetan

Big Boi:
As far as beat yo butt tough Haku, Danny Hodge, Judo Gene Lebell, Steve Williams and Billy Robinson have lots of legit W's.

Crazy guys such as Foley, Sabu, Sandman, Abby and Terry Funk are a different kind of tough.

GuvHog:
How many of you remember Skandor Akbar?? His real name was Jimmy Wehba and he was among the toughest. Though Wehba's Akbar character was an evil Arabian Sheik, Wehba himself was always a true Proud Flag waving American.

Kevin:
Dick slater off the choices given

Ox baker

TushCrush:
I agree with the comment about Andre. I would have to include Ox Baker in the mix (supposedly killed a man in the Orient with his "Heart Punch") but I went Bruiser Brody. Any time ... any where ... Chain Match, Cage Match, Strap Match (often resulting in terrible injury) he was the man.

I think it was Sean Waltman, maybe Nash, that told a story of him (Rude)breaking a dude's jaw with an open hand slap after the guy started talking about how fake wrasslin' is.

And whooped the warrior a few times ......  Kevin Nash smacked Samoa Joe a couple of times when he did a worked shoot on scott hall in TNA

Loved it when he and Killer Karl Kox tag teamed. 


How about Duthty Woads, the Amewican Dweam?

Hogwop:
I'm just kinda wondering what Big Papa Pump did to get on this poll? I've never really heard anything about him getting into it with anyone or anything. I think Jericho has done more to be deserving than Scotty has. Don't get me wrong, I have no problems with Steiner and thought his rambling promos were hilarious in the early 2000s, and he was great as a tag wrestler, but toughest? Dunno about that.

Anyway, if Nash (who could probably be on this as well) says it's Rude or Haku, then it's gotta be Rude or Haku. Rude just had that "dont Frank with me" look to him, and Haku was a monster.

Ken was the first man to clean 500 pounds in competition.  He couldn't quite get it overhead.

Yes Bruiser Bob and KKK left bodies laying in the ring.

KKK brain busted someone in Mid South on the cement.

BrooklynRoss:
I can't believe you guys don't know about New Jack.

The Mass Transit incident:

" ... It involved Eric Kulas, an aspiring professional wrestler using the ring name "Mass Transit", being bladed too deeply by New Jack of The Gangstas during a tag-team match. Two of Kulas's arteries were severed, he bled profusely and passed out, and needed to be escorted out of the arena with medical attention."

The Spanish Angel Feud:

"... in the course of a match, Angel used New Jack's staple gun (which he often wore around his neck with a chain) against him, stapling him in the eye. Referees called off the match, and New Jack disappeared from the air for many months."

The Danbury Fall:

"On March 12, 2000, at the Living Dangerously pay-per-view in Danbury, Connecticut, New Jack suffered legitimate brain damage and was permanently blinded in his right eye when he and his opponent, Vic Grimes, fell around 15 feet off a scaffold, missed the tables that were supposed to absorb the force of their fall and landed on the concrete floor, with Grimes landing on New Jack's head."

He said that when he landed, brain matter came out of his nose.

Vs. Gypsy Joe:

"In April 2003, New Jack was in a memorable hardcore match with longtime wrestler Gypsy Joe. Joe was continuously no-selling New Jack. New Jack also states on a shoot interview that Joe headbutted him in the nose. This caused New Jack to legitimately attack the sexagenarian with a chain, a framed picture of his aunt, a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, and several other weapons."

That Time He Got Really Stabby:

"During the match, New Jack pulled out a metal blade from his camouflage wrestling attire, and stabbed [William Jason] Lane nine times; This action caused New Jack to receive various felony charges, including for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and aggravated assault to commit murder.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Jack

Hogwop:
I don't see how legitimately harming the guys who were putting their trust in him makes him tough. To me it says he didn't have the talent to make a name for himself. Having to resort to using weapons on people is kind of the opposite of being a real deal tough guy, it just makes him a psychopath.

Yeah, Big Papa Pump (Scott Steiner) is a pussycat in real life. He's actually scared of his real life brother Rick Steiner.
