Nicole Bass (born October 26, 1964) is a large female bodybuilder and former professional wrestler often teased for her masculinity and deep voice, which sounds similar to Fred Gwynne's Herman Munster character from The Munsters. Fred Norris often impersonates this voice, especially during her appearances [on the Howard Stern Show].
Self-proclaimed as the "Largest Woman Bodybuilder in the world today", Bass began competition in the 1980s. She took first place in the 1997 NPC Nationals, and competed for Ms. Olympia in that year.
Nicole Bass debuted in Extreme Championship Wrestling during the first half of 1998. She aligned herself with Justin Credible, Chastity and Jason. She participated in feuds with Tommy Dreamer, Mikey Whipwreck and Beulah McGillicutty.
Bass soon joined the WWF, debuting as Sable's bodyguard at WrestleMania XV on March 28, 1999. She became involved in an extended feud with Debra McMichael, which culminated in a mixed tag match pitting Bass and Val Venis against Jeff Jarrett and Debra at the 1999 WWF Over the Edge. Bass was then aligned with Venis until she accidentally whacked him with Jarrett's guitar after losing a bikini contest to Debra. The following week, she interfered in a match between Debra and Ivory, with Debra losing her WWF Women's title due to Nicole's interference. This led to a brief alliance between Bass and Ivory, which ended abruptly when Bass left the WWF and filed a lawsuit against the organization for sexual harassment, claiming she was sexually assaulted backstage by Steve Lombardi. In 2003 the case went to court and was ultimately dismissed.
Bass continues to wrestle on the independent wrestling circuit, taking bookings through her official website. Bass also does bookings for public events and for personal training.
Bass makes appearances on The Howard Stern Show as both herself and in an acting capacity, and is a member of the Wack Pack.
Bass appeared in the 1999 film Pain and Suffering. She also appeared in a number of 2000 films such as Beat Your Ass, Violence on Violence, Spank Those Bitches 2, and I Love to Hurt You. Other than her appearances on Howard Stern's show, her latest acting role was in Man Handled (2000).
