Profile Bio Text
Tyler Mane (born Daryl Karolat; December 8, 1966) is a Canadian actor and former professional wrestler who worked for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as Big Sky and Nitro.
Professional wrestling career
Mane began wrestling for WCW in 1989 as Nitro, the bodyguard for Woman. This gimmick did not last long, and he soon went to Puerto Rico`s World Wrestling Council. He also wrestled for All Japan Pro Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling before returning to the United States to wrestle briefly in the Global Wrestling Federation. Mane then returned to WCW in 1993 as Big Sky, where he was managed by Woman and Sal Conte. While there, he teamed with another staggering individual, Kevin Nash, then known as Vinnie Vegas. Mane retired from wrestling in 1996.
After retiring from wrestling, he appeared in numerous films, including How to Make a Monster (as Hardcore), Joe Dirt, The Scorpion King, Troy (as Ajax), Hercules (as Antaeus), X-Men as Sabretooth, and The Devil`s Rejects (in the uncredited role of Rufus). Ironically, the role of Sabretooth was initially intended for Mane`s former wrestling tag team parter, Kevin Nash, but was awarded to Mane due to Nash`s scheduling conflicts. Nash would, however, get a small role in a later Marvel Comics film, The Punisher.
In 2007, he filmed Rob Zombie`s remake of Halloween, in which he plays the iconic starring role of Michael Myers. After winning the role, he noted that he consecutively watched seven of the eight Halloween films (excluding the third because Michael Myers does not appear) to better understand his character. He is the tallest actor (7` 0") to portray the character. Daryl Karolat was sometimes billed as being 6` 9" and 6` 10" in the wrestling business.
