He began bodybuilding at age 17 and was the German Champion by 1984. He competed in the 1988 Mr. Olympia alongside Lee Haney, Shawn Ray and others. He is one of the tallest bodybuilding champions to date standing at 1.97 m (6 ft 6 in), weighing 131 kilos (288 lbs) in 1988.
Möller began a film career in 1987 with the film Cyborg. In 1992, he appeared in Universal Soldier with Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude Van Damme. In 1993 he played the villain Brakus opposite Phillip Rhee and Eric Roberts in Best of the Best 2.
