My first pick..
Kevin Nash, a.k.a Diesel.
can't forget the nickname, "Big [b]daddy[/I] Cool
Diesel busted on the scene straight from WCW, as HBK's bodyguard. He would help Shawn beat Marty Jannety, Shawn's former partner for years, for the I-C title.
Diesel went on to plenty singles' success. Vital part of the NWO.

Big Boss Man. (RIP)
Big Boss Man wasn't always a corrections officer from Cobb County, GA.
He started in the NWA/WCW as Jim Correnette's bodyguard. The Midnight Express was in a bloody feud with the Rock 'N Roll Express and Correnette kept getting attacked. So his momma brought him a hugh man in a dark suit and dark glasses to be his bodyguard. Correnette called the Body Guard 'The Big Bossman'. A name that stuck though out his career even when he later broke away from Correnette and became a Corrections Office from Cobb County, GA and started wearing the prison guard outfit and carrying the baton. A gimmick he would use except for a brief stint as the Guardian Angle in WCW when for a brief time the WWF kept his name and he wasn't allowed to use Big Bossman when he returned to WCW after his long first stint in the WWF. Bossman's solution, return to WWF.
Wise move Big Bossman.

Very nice pick with Big Boss Man. I respected him, and you know PCH dug 'em if he's from Cobb county.
Nah, he IS/WAS one of the best I've ever seen. Should've had a bigger push in WCW n WWF.
He was also very agile for his size.
My next pick, kinda oddball.
None other than, Movie Star, Robocop!!!
Robocop saved the Icon Sting @ WCW's Capitol Combat, '90.
When you don't have a body guard, the next best thing is a cop, Robocop saved one of the best wrestlers not to wrestle for Vince, from the stomping he was going to receive from the mighty 4 horsemen.
New Robocop hitting theaters soon, know ya'll are excited. #throwback #LOL

My next pick is a little unorthodox but so is Robocop.
The bodyguard of Chris Jericho in WCW.
Ralphus was a play off of the bodyguards that used to walk Goldberg to the ring in WCW. Jericho used to run down Goldberg on the mike saying he was a lot better wrestler than Goldberg. So, since he was better Jericho needed bodyguards to walk him to the ring too but the only person he could find backstage was Ralphus. A short, fat, balding middle aged man that wore shirts too small to cover his growing beer belly. Ralphus was actually a truck driver for WCW that Jericho saw backstage and thought he made the perfect anti bodyguard for the Goldberg angle. He was right.
I know that Jericho is what made the Ralphus character comedy gold. He treated Ralphus like he was a real bodyguard that could fight his way out of a paper bag when you just knew he couldn't but you didn't care. Ralphus always had a look on his face like he thought Jericho was completely crazy but played along with him any way.
Their antics had me rolling in laughter every time they appeared on my TV screen!!!

My last pic, the "Enforcer", Arn Anderson.
"Double-A", always had Flair's back. Throughout the 90's, late 80's.
Arn Anderson was a horsemen, and he took pride in watching over Flair.
The longest reigning horsemen outside Flair, to be exact. Arn Anderson would come out with Flair, flash the 4's, chunk 'um up. haha
Flair was always good with Arn by his side.
I think over the years, I probably have seen Arn interfere, or just completely pummel Flair's opposition over a 1,000 times.
Anderson did not play the radio, to say the least.

Enforcer = Bodyguard?
I don't think so! All of the 4 Horsemen have always had Flair's back. It's part of why they were formed in the first place.
Onto my last pick, Virgil.
Virgil was a sucessful wrestler under the name of Brickhouse Brown before he came to the WWF to bodyguard the Million $ Man (Ted Dibiase). Virgil took a lot of beatings for Ted and a lot of bumps for interferring in matches. I can't picture the Milion $ Man (MM) without Virgil in by his side. Virgil appreared in all the skits of dastardly deeds used to intro the MM. "Everyone has their price"!
Virgil carried MM's money, especially the $100's stuffed in defeatedd foes' mouthes after matches ended. Virgil evenytually stoodup for himself and won his freedom from MM in a PPV match but the singles push of Virgil went no where. Probably b/c fans still saw Virgil as only a bodyguard. Virgil diapeared from the WWF and MM moved into managing wrestlers. But something always seemed missing with MM without Virgil by his side.
MM and Virgil later reprised their roles in WCW as part of the nWo. The fact that they used the character's original names would never, EVER be allowed by WWE today!
