• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (January 19, 2007) – WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2007, we lost Old School WWF/WCW/ECW Legend “The Beast From The East” Bam Bam Bigelow (Real name: Scott Bigelow) at the age of 45 after a drug overdose.
Bam Bam is still considered one of the greatest ‘Big Men’ (which means chubby/fat wrestlers) in Professional Wrestling history (probably sharing the #1 spot with Big Van Vader).
Bigelow wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1987 until 1988 and again from late 1992 till late 1995.
† REST IN PEACE BAM BAM!
September 1, 1961 – January 19, 2007

For those who don’t know, Batista vs. Triple H is rumored to take place at WrestleMania 35 (if Triple H can heal in-time for WrestleMania 35). The seeds for this feud were planted at SmackDown 1000 in October 2018.
