History: Ron Reis has yet to make a 'sizable' impact on the sport of professional wrestling, but he'll surely be remembered for his major appearance in WCW. In October '95, Hulk Hogan was in the middle of a major feud with the Dungeon of Doom, who said they were prepared for Hogan. A week before the PPV, Reis 'arose' from a block of ice as a mummy, called the Yeti. The Yeti attacked Hogan a few times, then switched from bandages to a 'ninja'-like costume. After a few PPVs, though, the Yeti faded away.

After this, Reis tried gimmicks as Big Ron Studd (similar to the late Big John Studd) and T-Rex. Neither gimmick worked well, causing the WCW bookers to keep Reis out for a while. In 1998, Reese reappeared as a member of Raven's Flock. He had a few minor feuds with Van Hammer and Juventud Guerrera, helping Raven and the Flock. He also became one of the biggest men to be Speared and Jackhammered by Bill Goldberg. Soon, though, Reese faded away from the Flock, disappearing before Saturn defeated Raven, breaking the Flock apart. Reese then disappeared from the Flock, and apparently was released from his WCW contract in early 1999. Ron Reis later went to Japan, wrestling under the name of BB Jones. He later came to Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling, which is run by the American Dream Dusty Rhodes. Reis is again wrestling as Big Ron Studd, and is managed by Luther Biggs.
