Questions: Giant Allosauroids and "Big Ed"

Hmmm... So now we have:

-Acrocanthosaurus atokensis
-Allosaurus (Epantarias?  Saurophagus?) amplexus
-Giganotosaurus carolinii
-Carcharodontosaurus saharicus

and possibly:

-Bahariasaurus ingens

All giant, multiton Allosaur-like animals.  How do these guys fit togther?
Does anyone know for sure?

And just what exactly is "Big Ed"?  When was it discovered?

Also, seeing the reconstruction of Giganotosaurus, the body doesn't seem
that much bigger than Carcharodontosaurus, but--that thing has a freakin'
oversized head!

On a similar note I'd be interested to know what exactly the top carnivores
were at the end of the Cretaceous in South America, Africa and Australia.
As well as in Europe and the eastern part of North America, and just how
big they got.
