WWE names the 30 greatest 'big men' in pro wrestling history

Hey, look! Another list to dissect.

Of the many lists WWE.com has given us, all of which have been entertaining in some form or another, this one is perhaps the most interesting because, well, there's so much room at the top.

After all, how many great "big men" have come through in pro wrestling? Far too many to count, really, but WWE is giving us its list of the top 30 in history.

From WWE.com (as always, please click and head over to read the detailed report on why these decisions were made):

30. Kamala
29. Haystacks Calhoun
28. Big Daddy V
27. Don Leo Jonathan
26. "Crusher" Jerry Blackwell
25. Bubba Ray Dudley
24. One Man Gang
23. Giant Baba
22. Abdullah the Butcher
21. King Kong Bundy
20. Big John Studd
19. Umaga
18. Sid
17. Rikishi
16. Diesel
15. Bruiser Brody
14. Earthquake
13. Big Boss Man
12. Blackjack Mulligan
11. Mark Henry
10. Gorilla Monsoon
9. Stan Hansen
8. "Big Cat" Ernie Ladd
7. Yokozuna
6. Bam Bam Bigelow
5. Vader
4. Kane
3. Big Show
2. Andre the Giant
1. Undertaker

There are issues all over the place, to my eyes, though I'm fine with the top two. Big Show is far too high for my liking, as is Kane and Big Boss Man. Sid doesn't even belong on the list. Big John Studd and king Kong Bundy should both be higher.

The best part about this is the fact that Bam Bam was given such a high spot. He might be one of the most underrated workers ever.
