If anyone out there is looking for someway to burn their Monday afternoon, may I suggest coloring in this photo of Bam Bam Bigelow from a WCW coloring book that I own for some reason. All the drawings are pretty terrible, but I like this one of the Beast from the East as they actually included his insignia.
Feel free to submit your completed work to us when it’s done. I’m not saying that there’s a prize up for grabs, but I’m not saying that there ISN’T a prize up for grabs*…

Bam Bam Bigelow vs Tito Santana - WWF Prime Time Wrestling [12/7/1992]
The final moment of the match between “The Beast From the East” and “El Matador” taken from the March 1993 issue of WWF Magazine. Fun little photo editing going on there inside a piece that just runs through the match, calling it a “Battle of the Titans”.
Bam Bam Bigelow vs “El Matador” Tito Santana - WWF Prime Time Wrestling [12/7/1992]
A great series of action shots from a match that help build Bigelow out to be an unstoppable beast that would eventually feud with Bret Hart for the WWF Championship.
The Jersey Triad - Bam Bam Bigelow, Diamond Dallas Page, and Kanyon - WCW 
While these guys didn’t last long as a stable, I always enjoyed seeing them due to how much I loved heel DDP. I also loved how WCW allowed them to invoke the “Freebird Rule”, a rule that allowed any combination of the three to defend the WCW Tag Team Championship titles.
The Beast from the East, the King of Bada-Bing, and the Innovator of Offense - who betta*?
*the answer is none. none betta
Andre the Giant vs Bam Bam Bigelow - WWF at Madison Square Garden [6/25/1988]
I’m not aware of these two having that many one-on-one confrontations during their time in the WWF. It’s a real shame as the video of this match is surprsingly good, even if the whole match was thrown out due to “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan’s interference. As for the card itself, it was completely solid for the New York crowd with the main event being the infamous “Weasel Suit” match between the Ultimate Warrior and Bobby Heenan.
Hardcore Hak vs Bam Bam Bigelow - WCW Spring Stampede 4/11/1999
Despite that WCW’s Hardcore matches were pale imitations of what made Extreme Championship Wrestling famous, they still were fun filler bouts that were usually full of great spots. This one had Hak (AKA The Sandman) putting Bam Bam through a table by jumping off the wagon stageset, a White Russian legsweep onto the guard railing, and a Death Valley Driver through a table!
A great match that’s nowhere to be found on the Internet due to the WWE’s recent wave of copyright claims against awesome matches like this.
Bam Bam Bigelow, Scott Steiner, and Buff Bagwell Beating Up 1974 Peter Criss - Austin, TX 8/19/2012
Since, I came across a bunch of old wrestling figures in a box, I figured that today will be toy day at Drop ToeHold. Every post today will be scans I’ve gathered from various mags featuring wrestling action figures.
Bam Bam Bigelow’s WCW Debut - WCW Monday Nitro 11/16/98
I described this in an earlier post, but it’s better to just watch it in it’s entirety.
Bam Bam was still fierce and intimidating in this stage of his career, and I remember absolutely loving his Greetings From Asbury Park finisher (over the shoulder reverse piledriver). Such a great performer, such a fun time in wrestling where fans still lost their shit at events like this.
