Nathan Jones (born 21 August 1970) is a former inmate of Boggo Road who went on to become an actor and professional wrestler. Before beginning his current careers, Nathan was sentenced to 16 years in Boggo Road for eight armed robberies committed during 1985-87, two of them in Tasmania. During the robberies, he became one of Australia's most wanted criminals. He ended up serving seven years in the maximum-security section of the prison and one year on work release. While in prison, he was introduced to the sport of powerlifting, and within a short space of time became the National Powerlifting Champion of Australia. Boggo Road officers well remember his violent temper and the time he dislodged a cell door from its hinges. He did, however, manage to overcome his aggressive tendencies and left prison a changed man.
He began competing on the 'strongman' circuit, where he was dubbed The Megaman for his imposing physique (211cm (6’ 11”) tall and 159kg (25 stone). As the reigning Australia's Strongest Man, he entered and won the World Strength Championship in Scotland in 1995. After competing in several more strongman competitions and working as a bodyguard for Rene Rivkin, Nathan began a career in wrestling. He first gained fame working in World Wrestling All-Stars and won the WWA World Heavyweight Championship in 2002.
He then appeared in the WWE as 'The Undertaker's' protégé, and later became known as the ‘The Colossus of Boggo Road’. The rigor of WWE lifestyle, compounded by dyslexia, became too much for Jones and he quit the WWE in December 2003, but made further occasional appearances in Australian wrestling venues over the next couple of years. He also turned up at Boggo Road to do some promo shoots and met several BRGHS members.
Nathan had some success in the movie industry, beginning with a role in Jackie Chan's 'First Strike' as a Russian hit man. In the movie 'Troy' he played a giant Greek champion named Boagrius who was dispatched in one blow by Achilles (Brad Pitt). He appears as bad guy ‘TK’ in the Thai martial arts movie 'The Protector' and the Jet Li movie 'Fearless'. Other movies include the WWF production 'The Condemned', a Thai movie called Somtum, and as Humungus in 'Asterix at the Olympics'.
