WWE’s “jets” and “giants”

WWE “giant” — Andre the Giant

Measuring 7-foot-4 and weighing well larger than 500 pounds, Andre the Giant is in a class all his own. Quite possibly the most physically intimidating individual ever to step in the squared circle, the native of Grenoble, France, redefined what it meant to be a “giant.” During his legendary career, the “Eighth Wonder of the World” was rarely beaten, going undefeated for an unbelievable 15 years. While his pure size was terrifying, Andre also possessed an incredible physical strength, even for such a large man. In 1993, Andre became the first inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame, guaranteeing he will forever be the benchmark against which any other WWE “giant” is compared.
