* PintSizedPowerhouse: By today's standards at least, since he was 5'9. However, there was really nothing to compare him to at the time. In fact, while he generally won his matches quickly, he moved slower than his opponents due to his build, which worked fine in the Greco-Roman style he used but not so well in the catch-as-catch-can style. In fact, if he was around today, he might even qualify for MightyGlacier by current standards.
