I might have to go with Joel Stubbs. I have seen both Ronnie and Joel up close in their prime. Ronnie was every bit what the bill states- mindblowing from every angle. Joel entered the room and you questioned if this guy was one or two humans put together.

Orville Burke, a guy not talked about much.

I’ll add Jean Pierre Fux to this conversation, one of the 90s biggest mass monsters.

He’s that Orville that invented the first airplane, Wright? Well he has wingspan to take off.

They all get my vote.
Being that large was a life-long dream since 1982 or so. Now at 56 yoa, I’m finally to the point where I wouldn’t want to be that big. (Maybe on weekends.)

Just based on the two pictures in this thread, if Coleman and Stubbs were at the same level of conditioning, it looks like Coleman would have the bigger back. Still impressive though.

Overall back… Yates

I’ll give an honorable mention to powerlifter Oleksandr Kutcher for having a back that looked like it belonged on a bodybuilding stage, and he was only 5’2" and competed in the 165lb weight class!

I saw him once in person, like right next to him, outside of the Beacon Theater in Manhattan one of the years I went to the Night of Champions (now the NY Pro that is usually not in NY😀).

The pros of the 90’s and early aughts resembled a different species.
