The Big Boss Man started out wrestling in the late 1980's in the WWF. He teamed up with Akeem to form the Twin Towers with Slick as their manager. They later broke up and the Boss Man became a great singles wrestler. He is best known for wrestling in an light blue correctional officer's uniform and carrying a nightstick to the ring.

The Big Boss Man jumped to WCW in the mid 90's and had several names including Big Bubba Rogers, The Guardian Angel and The Boss, among others. He came back to the WWF in late 1998 as a security guard to Vince McMahon. In the Corporation, he teamed with Ken Shamrock to win the WWF Tag Team Titles and later he had the Hardcore Title. He doesn't wrestle much on TV for the WWE anymore, but he was last seen in the RAW brand of the WWE.

He was known for wrestling some of the biggest names in wrestling, including Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, and the British Bulldog.  He wrestled for both the WCW and WWE Heavyweight championships (against the British Bulldog and The Big Show, respectively) but never won either.

The Big Boss Man died on September 22, 2004 by unknown causes.  He will surely be missed.
