#6 King Kong Bundy

Named after an infamous serial killer, and one of the best-known monsters in pop culture

Long before Big E pinned down his opponents for a 5-count on NXT, there was a ferocious and vicious heel called King Kong Bundy, who did the same. For those who are unfamiliar with the man, he can be dubbed the Braun Strowman of the Golden Era of WWE. Never the finest worker, but his presence made up for it.

King Kong Bundy had classic matches against some of the biggest Superstars of classic era WWE, such as Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant. At a time when there are so few big men in wrestling, someone like King Kong Bundy would have been a great addition to the current product. With his mic skills, he could have worked some great angles too!
