Challenge to the internets

A challenge to my movie nerd friends, particularly of the "sweaty men pummeling each other" genre.
Who was the actor who played the bad guy, named I want to say "Brackus" in the seminal 1989 martial arts bash-fest Best of the Best ?

Bonus points if you can prove that he was or was not the same actor who played "The Shadow of Death" in the dreadful Spartacus: Blood and Sand ? I theorize it's the same freakishly large Germanic pummeling artist, but oddly neither man is credited in either entry.

Weren't the bad guys in Best of the Best all Koreans?

Oooh, right. You're thinking Ralf Moeller, of Best of the Best 2. He was Conan in the conan TV series. He was also in Gladiator as the muscular Germanic sidekick, and in Scorpion King as... the muscular Germanic sidekick.

Mike, I sense some contempt on your part towards ol' Johann one note.

I think you are just jealous that YOU haven't been able to get cast as the Germanic sidekick.

Au contraire! First of all, he occasionally gets cast as Germanic leading man, not Germanic sidekick, and occasionally I've seen him as Scandinavian sidekick -- not so one-note now, is he?

Also, if you knew me better you'd know that my obsession with 80's musclemen action heroes borders on the disturbing, to the point where I am occasionally forced to question my own sexual proclivities.

Important to note: he is forced to question his own sexual proclivities by 80's musclemen.

I am disappointed, however, that he can't identify the Germanic muscleman from Spartacus.

Unlike the entire BotB series, I've never seen that version of Spartacus, so I can't even make an educated guess.
