Bam Bam Bigelow saves children from fire

bam bamHe was one of the greatest, most agile “big men” to ever step into a ring, but Bigelow’s greatest accomplishment was arguably in the summer of 2000.

Details are sketchy at best, but most reports confirm that Bigelow dashed into a burning house to rescue three children trapped inside. It bears some similarities to Chris Masters’ recent daring rescue, but the ending isn’t quite as happy.

Bigelow reportedly suffered nasty burns over 40 percent of his body (which is eerily ironic, considering that his full-body wrestling outfit was covered in flames).  Bigelow reportedly spent weeks in hospital, and the injuries forced him out of wrestling forever.

He is quoted as having said that the rescue was “the best move I ever made.”

It was almost certainly the noblest and most selfless move he ever made. But we’re also still fans of this more aggressive move.
