After being absent from WWE for years, the Big Boss Man made his return to protect Vince McMahon from the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin and the Undertaker. It wasn't long before the Boss Man defeated Mankind for his first WWE title - the Hardcore Championship. Soon thereafter, he teamed up with Ken Shamrock to become one half of the Tag Team Champions. His success since returning to WWE should come as no surprise. He has shed the excess weight, which hindered his success in the past. The man from Cobb County is now quicker and more dangerous than ever before.
