* United States champion [[Wrestling/RusevAndLana Rusev]] may border on it, but so far he's been billed as an indestructible fighting machine who has so far defeated everyone in his path, with only [[Wrestling/JohnCena one person]] unofficially giving him his first real defeat since his debut. And then he had bad luck running into Wrestling/RomanReigns...

And then he had bad luck the misfortune running into Wrestling/RomanReigns...



* Following the new Brand Extension in 2016, ''Raw'' gained two: Former Wrestling/WyattFamily henchman Braun Strowman for the men, and Nia Jax of the Samoan wrestling dynasty for the women. Both have routinely squashed [[{{Jobber}} jobbers]] (up to three at once in Strowman's case), and each also has [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] a main roster opponent twice (Wrestling/SinCara for Strowman, Wrestling/AliciaFox for Nia). Both are sold as unstoppable monsters in their respective divisions, with the ''Raw'' commentary crew often wondering how one stops Strowman, and Strowman has even gone so far as to personally threaten ''Raw'' general manager Wrestling/MickFoley in the name of getting better competition. As a result, he got Wrestling/SamiZayn.
** Conversely, ''[=SmackDown=]'' has only one: Baron Corbin. He hasn't bothered much with jobbers, unlike Strowman and Jax, and went straight up after the main roster superstars that irked him, such as Kalisto and Wrestling/JackSwagger, curb stomping almost all of them. His finisher, the End of Days, has never been kicked out of after he's delivered it to his opponent. And at the ''Wrestling/RoyalRumble'' Corbin did the thing many other wrestlers would consider impossible: he eliminated Strowman.

Is he out [[ToBeAMaster to win championships]]? Does he live [[PerformanceArtist to entertain the fans]]? Is it [[MoneyDearBoy all about]] [[WrestlingDoesntPay the money]]? No, all he cares about is destruction, preferably the destruction of other living things. His shadow stretches far, his footsteps fall hard, he strikes swiftly, his BattleCry being the only warning, [[TheVoiceless if you're lucky]]. He's as strong as he is fast, as tough as he is agile, he's savage and is likely from PartsUnknown. He's a monster!

** Cage "The Machine" is another example- bulging with muscles, stuffed with brutality and almost impossible to put down, he absolutely [[BerserkButton HATES it]] when an opponent gets up after he's knocked them down and will make them pay for their audacity. Not a perfectly straight example as although he's a power wrestler, he's also ''startlingly'' agile for his size (like most of the LU roster) and is easily capable of flying over the top rope in pursuit of his victims... which only makes him even ''more'' intimidating!
** Matanza Cueto quickly stole the mantle of the biggest monster in Wrestling/LuchaUnderground. His brother Dario Cueto entered him as the last man in Aztec Warfare, and Matanza made quick work of nearly half the active roster, winning the Lucha Underground title in emphatic fashion.

Like Cage, Matanza isn't a giant (while he's scarily bulky, he's only about 5'10"), but also like Cage he's also ''much'' more agile than a man that strong has any right to be, capable of pulling off ''a standing shooting star press!''

* In ''Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand'', the gladiator Theokoles The Shadow Of Death is portrayed as something of an Ancient Roman version of this. He's a huge man who mostly screams and hisses instead of speaking, takes ungodly amounts of punishment, and sometimes pretends to be dead so that he can shock the crowd and his opponents by "coming back to life".

** And that's if you're lucky enough to not cross paths with the arm-breaking [[TheDreaded Pentagon Jr]].

** And that's if you're lucky enough to not cross paths with the arm-breaking [[TheDreaded Pentagon Jr]].Dark]]. Pentagon is an interesting variant on this trope as he's not huge, unstoppable, unshakable, implacable, or monstrous; in fact, he's mostly a technical wrestler who largely specialises in submissions. What he ''does'' have on his side is sheer brutal, sadistic viciousness that makes him one of the most outright ''dangerous'' men on the roster.

** To put this in perspective, Goldberg has apparently ''never'' lost a match cleanly (save for a No DQ match, which may or may not count). In standard matches, he's ''always'' come out on top unless cheating is involved.
