Big John Studd

Born February 19, 1948
Died March 20, 1995
He was 47 years old

I don't think there could have been a more appropriate name for this man than Big John Studd. It just didn't seem right or possible that he could die of something like Hodgkins disease and liver cancer.

There will likely never be two men the size of Studd and Andre the Giant squaring off against each other. I was happy to see Studd return to the WWF in 1989 and win the Royal Rumble. He deserved the spotlight.
