I would agree that tank isn't a great description of his role, since the word implies that you can do stuff to mitigate damage. He's just a tubby attack/defense hybrid.
Not only that, but Whole Hog has lots of knockback, and can be used to shove the enemy team off the objective so overtime can expire. I've kept at least one game from staying in overtime that way.
