Pro-Wrestler Bam Bam Bigelow Dies At Age 45

January 23, 2007 11:58 a.m. EST


Pete Flies - All Headline News Sports Reporter
Hudson, FL (AHN) - Former pro-wrestler and actor Scott 'Bam Bam' Bigelow died over the weekend. The 45-year-old was found dead in his home, according to an announcement made by his brother Todd Bigelow. The wrestler retired from the sport in 2004 and appeared in four movies from 1992 to 2000.

An autopsy did not find any signs of foul play. Todd Bigelow mentioned that his brother was battling diabetes and an infection.

Bigelow took his nickname from the cartoon, 'The Flintstones,' and a character named Bamm Bamm Rubble. His weight was billed at 360 pounds, and he was sometimes listed at 400 pounds.

Early in his career, he went by the names Crusher Yurkov, Crusher Bigelow and Bruce Bigelow before using Bam Bam.

He often played the part of the "heel," or villain in the wrestling ring for the entertainment of the audience. His heavily tattooed body and scalp added to his villainous appearance, and wrestled the likes of crowd favorites Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant.

Bigelow won the World Championship Wrestling Hardcore Championship once and was a two-time Tag Team champion. He was named the 1986 rookie of the year by Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
