Who was the largest female wrestler ever? I'm going for a combo of height and weight. Who was/is women's wrestling's closest equivalent to Andre the Giant,Giant Baba,or Paul Wight? The only ones I can think of are the late Bertha Faye and a tall wrestler WCW had for a little while during their dying days. I can't remember her name,but she had a basketball gimmick. I think she was called "Slam Dunk".

I don't know what her real name was, but there was a female who went by "Heather Feather" who must have been 400-500 lbs. I seem to recall her in Farhat's Detroit promotion about 1970.

Actually, Slam Dunk was in WOW. She was billed as being 6'3". I'm not sure if that's legit but she was definitely the tallest woman in the promotion.

Heather Feather was featured in "I Like to Hurt People." That's the only place I've heard of her.

That 'Mad Maxine' was pretty dang tall.

Nickla Roberts at I think it's 6' 1" and about 210 was sorta outsize compared to the other girls.

She may not be the largest, but Queen Kong was pretty big.

Lady Maxine was billed as 6' 5". I'm sure that was a work, but she was definitely taller than Jack Victory.

I saw her on a local talk show in 1987. It was really sad. She had gotten out of wrestling, and did not deal well with the insensitivities of the wrestling business. I wish I had taped the show.

The female Andre the Giant, in both size and looks, would be Svetlana Gundarenko. She's 6'4" and was around 300lb (even more today) when she wrestled as a pro in FMW 1991-92. She is more famous for being a world class judo star competing in several Olympics and has also done a few shoot fights in Japan, the most famous was her decision loss to pro-wrestler Megumi Yabushita who is just 5'1" and 150Ib!

Heather Feather was a regular for the Sheik's Big Time Wrestling promotion in Detroit during the mid 70s. Lou Klein trained Heather along with many other female wrestlers including Lou's daughter Linda.

That might be who I'm thinking of. Although I still remember a female wrestler in WCW with a basketball gimmick. I remember the one from WOW now that the promotion was mentioned.

Thanks for the posts guys.

I saw Heather Feather in Mount Vernon, Ohio in 1972. Very round, but not very tall. She was billed as being well over 300 pounds;I'm not sure how accurate that was. The Russian lady pictured above appears to be much bigger.

Midnight = Ann Marie Crooks..

I can recall her being listed somewhere @ 5'11'',205 or so...

Not quite the biggest; in fact somewhat smaller than Heather, Nicole Bass and the rest

Don't know if it's the same person, but Jack Pfefer had a "Lady Blimp" under contract. Her real name was Charlene Ward. This was in September 1967.

Found an old article about Heather Feather from the Detroit Free Press (1973) and it says she was 23 years young, 5'10" tall and weighed 389 lbs.,
and her real name is Peggy Jones.

Here's the link to the article and I hope this works...

Wonder if she could work a professional wrestling match? She certainly has the personality to draw in the fans.

I mean. no one's gonna' wanna see someone so sweet fail in the ring.

Would they let her actual personality shibe through? Smart money says they bury it behind bad writing and a dopey character. She'd wind up playing Vince playing her, not herself.
