Wrestler
    (1934-December 7, 1989)
    Birth name is William Calhoun
    Former WWE Team Champion
    Wrestled for the WWE
    He would always wear a horseshoe around his neck.
    He would wrestle barefoot and in overalls to reflect his background.
    He weighed around 450 to 500 pounds, yet the WWE didn't feel that was heavy enough so they billed him as being 601 pounds.
    He was involved in a battle royal in Los Angeles but they didn't want him to win, so they changed the rules by having all the wrestlers pile on top of him to pin his shoulders to the mat.
    His weight was supposed to make him look superior, yet Bruno Sammartino slammed him easily.
    He was one of the first in a long list of hillbilly wrestlers to make their way through the WWE.
    He died from diabetes, yet many people think he died from a heart attack due to his massive weight.
    He was one of wrestling's biggest attractions in the 60's and 70's and rarely lost a match.
    He was in huge demand with promoters all over North America.
    He was a devoted family man, always traveling with his wife.
    He and Tony Garea made for a unique tag team. Haystacks was heavy and sloppy-looking while Garea was about half the size of him, in good shape and a huge fan with the ladies, yet the two made a great tag team and won the tag belts together.
    The WWE named him one of the 50 greatest wrestlers in the history of the company.
