    Dave Meltzer wrote (on WrestlingObserver.com): I just wanted to mention a few words about Bam Bam Bigelow. Scott Bigelow was something of a phenomenon when he came into pro wrestling in 1986. He beat out Owen Hart for Rookie of the Year and from his first major program, in Memphis with Jerry Lawler, was a superstar. He had many ups and downs over the past 20 years. He did well in some places, and not so well in others. Some saw how he looked as a positive, and others didn't. He was one of those guys who fell out of organized sports young, because with his size and agility, he probably should have been a football star. One NFL coach who was a friend of mine was blown away seeing a guy of that size with that kind of lightness on his feet and couldn't understand how he didn't play college and pro ball. He was a very good high school wrestler, but never went any farther with it. He also had the drawbacks mentally that come with being a star from day one, and then going to WWF where some didn't respect that he had proven anything, but started out at the top there, often teaming with Hulk Hogan. Some tough veterans like Andre and Sika roughed him up on that first run. He became a bigger star in Japan, where he became the foreign monster with credibility, who could carry newcomers and get them over. It was a role he later played with Lawrence Taylor at Wrestlemania 11.
