3. BIG JOHN HARRIS (September 12, 1952 – April 19, 2005)
2.26m / 7ft 5in (Billed Height 2.31m / 7ft 6in)
The #3 on our list of the tallest Pro-Wrestlers ever, John Elmo Harris used to wrestle for various Territories during the mid-80s, using different ring names. He was known as “Big John Harris” (Memphis), “Little John” (WCCW) and “Silo Sam” (AWA), before being signed to a WWF contract in 1990, where he went by the name of “Trapper John”.
Unfortunately they fired him before he even had his first televised match. Most Old School Fans will remember him portraying a jealous boyfriend, chasing Pee-Wee Herman in the movie ‘Pee Wee’s Big Adventure’.
