André the Giant

André René Roussimoff, best known as André the Giant, was a French professional wrestler and actor. His best-remembered acting role was that of Fezzik, the giant in the film The Princess Bride. His size was a result of gigantism caused by excess growth hormone, which later resulted in acromegaly. This led to him being called "The Eighth Wonder of the World". In the World Wrestling Federation, André was a one-time WWF Champion and a one-time WWF World Tag Team Champion. In 1993, André was the inaugural inductee into the WWF Hall of Fame. ... more on Wikipedia
