If I can get 8 total I would go with that.


Greg Gagne
Mike Von Erich
Kendall Windham
Jeff Jarrett
Sam Houston

Who else? I need 3 more.

Was Jake Roberts slender enough? Oh, and what about Dustin Rhodes?

Before he filled out more, Barry Windham. I would definitely include Jake.

Would David and Kevin Von Erich qualify?

Was David slender enough and was Kevin tall enough I guess is the question.

Maybe Dustin,

I was thinking of guys who you knew some fans were saying "he's too skinny to be a rassler"

Is it incorrect to put my five examples in the same mold?

Jeff Jarrett isn't even 6 feet tall is he?


Rick Rude was 6ft 2in or more, and had a slight build. Admittedly, he was pumped up to the last, but his frame was small. Doesn't count for 'too skinny to be a wrestler' though.

Spivey is not slender enough I'd imagine.

Just barely. I think he started in 89.

What's tall? Neither Gagne, Jarrett or Mike Von Erich are tall in my definition of tall.

Right. Scratch Jarrett being 5-10

The rest are atleast 6 foot.

What's the lowest Kendall ever weighed? I have 224 but I thought he was lighter.

So I need 8 guys from the 80s who were atleast 6 foot, weighed no more than 220 or 225

I don't know what they announced him as but if Windham was over 190 legit with Rhodes as the Texas Broncos I'd be shocked.He was a bean pole.

None of those guys were tall and the Mulkeys weren't exactly what I would call slender. They were probably about average weight for their size.

Rick Rude was pretty skinny when he started out, as Rick Rood.

Steve Simpson

He was taller then Waltman when they wrestled in the GWF, so he had to be six foot. His two brothers didn't get blessed with the same height. Really underrated guy IMO, seen very few of his matches that I didn't enjoy.

David, for me, would qualify, but not Kevin.

A whole lot of guys fit this. How about limiting it to "tall, slender and clumsy"? Then we could acknowledge Cowboy Tex McKenzie.

If you ask this guy, there is no need for a tournament.
