Would you class Yokozuna as the greatest big man of all time?
I used to be a indy wrestler for JAPW, and was part of a seminar with Larry Czabysko. He talked about selling out Shea Stadium with him and Sammartino in the main event. I don't remember if Bret Hart wrestled at Wrestlemania 3, but by the time he was a huge star WWF was not in stadiums with 50,000+ seats. So based on that I would say Sammartino.
Based on similar logic, and maybe some bias on enjoying him as a kid, I would give it personally to Andre the Giant. He obviously was limited as an actual wrestler but his appeal and presence in the ring is unmatched by any big man since. If your talking as for wrestling, yeah I would think Yoko was best.
