Staples got his start in the local independent promotions of Virginia and Pennsylvania where his large size was an attraction and he sometimes wrestled handicap matches against two opponents. In 1991 he had a televised match against Arachnaman on WCW WorldWide. He's had at least one retirement match in 2001.
In 2002, Staples had his only match on Pay-Per-View where he defeated Frank Parker on TNA's second show. He was roundly criticized for being winded and out of shape, which contributed to a horrible match.
Staples has wrestled several matches for BWF under the name Rolling Thunder in 2014 and 2015.
