From the land of the “Stars and Stripes”, the 7 foot 1 tall mountain man, we present the Giant Warrior! An American-born ring veteran of more than 20 years, Giant Warrior has wrestled across the globe defeating many a foe, capturing numerous championships and leaving battered and bruised bodies in his wake. However this colossus is no stranger to the South African wrestling scene, having competed on our shores in the early 1990’s while inciting riots at nearly every show! With his most notable rivalries including the likes of SA wrestling legends Danie Voges, Danie Brits and Gama Singh, he was surely a dominating force to be reckoned with! And now, with the dawning of the new decade, Giant Warrior has returned to South Africa with a thirst for new blood. The next generation of AWA wrestlers had better watch out, for the Giant Warrior is here and he is here to maim, destroy and conquer!
