I have plenty of reasons for wishing I were Canadian besides Tom Magee. Still, Magee (6'4" and 275#) would be a pretty good reason all by himself. His wrestling career lasted from 1985 to 1990, but he's best remembered for two things: (1) being the man Vince McMahon loved until he signed him on to the WWF and (2) being Mountain, the man Brian Bosworth beat up on Pensacola Beach in Stone Cold - one of the hottest fights ever caught on film (I was living in Pensacola at the time. How did I miss out on this?)
A lot of Magee's gigs put him up against a bristly old-school veteran, whom Tom would dominate for two-thirds of the match on the merits of strength alone, then have his ass handed to him bigtime because his muscles were not equal to the veteran's accumulated experience and know-how. A lot of the online comments about Magee's wrestling prowess (or lack thereof) are coyly or flagrantly homophobic, making me love the guy all the more (whether he's a member of the tribe or not).
