The André the Giant wiki last edited by bloodycanadian1985 on 07/31/14 02:46PM View full history

His most famous rivalry was with Hulk Hogan. His Wrestlemania III match with Hogan was one of the most watched sporting events of all time. He was the very first inductee into the WWF Hall of Fame.

He was later known for his role as Fezzik in the 1987 film, "The Princess Bride."

André died in his sleep due to congestive heart failure on January 27, 1993 . Out of respect, and because of his immense fame, he appears in wrestling games as a "Legend" to this day, as recently as WWE All-Stars in 2011.
