"Big" Rick Fuller was born Richard Fuller in 1969, in Middleboro, Massachusetts.
Rick trained under "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka and "Mr. USA" Tony Atlas at their wrestling school in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
He made his pro wrestling debut in 1990, and made his debut in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1997 in a match against Lex Luger.
Rick wrestled (and lost to) some of the greats in the WCW.
Besides Luger, he went up against Chris Benoit, Diamond Dallas Page, The Giant (Big Show), Booker T, Jeff Jarrett, Meng, Buff Bagwell, "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan and he was one of the first victims of Goldberg's winning streak in early 1998.

After WCW closed, Rick went to the Indy circuit where he has been successful and still wrestles today.
In the independent circuit he has wrestled for promotions like Chaotic Wrestling, Eastern Wrestling Alliance (EWA), Lethal Pro Wrestling (LPW), NWA New England, NWA Southwest and New England Championship Wrestling among others.

Rick also appeared as a prison inmate in the 2008 crime drama "What Doesn't Kill You" with Ethan Hawke and Mark Ruffalo.

He also appeared in the video games WCW Nitro and WCW/NWO Thunder.
