Leon White: aka Big Van Vader

I still can’t believe that I missed out in the mid-80’s pre-Vader action of Leon White, aka Bull Power.  The very first time I stumbled upon him was when he was wrestling in Japan and he was mostly wearing a mask.  I still remember watching this Japanese channel in Hawaii and I barely understood what was being said.  But all I cared about was seeing this massive behemoth wrestle in all his beefy glory.  [Just for the Hawaiians out there: “Oceanic Cable, we are, Oceanic Cable…”]  ^_^

Here’s a two-parter of Leon White against the equally woofy daddy cowboy bear, Stan Hansen (check out SDW Media’s Stan Hansen’s DVD, which is part of the awesome “Southern Legends” Collection)…

And I just discovered that I forgot about the scan I did of Vader from the back cover of my WCW magazine.  Thank goodness for my slow-@$$ and oftentimes inaccurate Windows Vista search bar…

And keeping with the theme of our big man Vader flexing his bulky guns, here’s an old collage I made of this beefy monster…

SDW Media: The Only Place For Fans Of Pro-Wrestling & Bearish Wrestlers

Let’s see: Ginormous monster heels,
beefy and barrel-chested he-men,
short and stocky musclebears…
Um, more please?

I am a big fan of pro-wrestling.  No surprise there, I bet.  Specifically, I love old-school pro-wrestling where it involves massive, big, muscular, husky, chubby, bearish men who are practically nude with their wrestling singlets.  I have always enjoyed watching these behemoth warriors do what they do best in the squared circle…

Well, SDW Media, was my source for that obsession.  That company’s owner has always been very friendly and reliable with my orders.  I used to be his customer back when he used to provide these valuable archives on eBay.  He was not selling them on DVD at the time, so I would highly recommend you guys in checking out his DVDs.  My VHS tapes were in great condition, but you can never go wrong with the DVD format…

(As a note, if you’re thinking of getting VHS instead of DVD, the company’s only selling them in NTSC format and not PAL.  DVDs, on the other hand, will play in any region.  So go with DVDs!)

By the way, check out my “tags” at the bottom of this post.  Specifically the names of such classic bearish pro-wrestlers.  I wrote them all down just by staring at the collage I’ve made from SDW Media’s screenshots of their videos.  And I did it all through my memory alone. Impressive? Lol. Yeah, I’m smug and proud about my encyclopedic knowledge of massive and husky pro-wrestlers.  Still, some of you guys probably know a lot more that I do though. ^_^
