By the time André Roussimoff aka André the Giant (1946 – 1993) was twelve years old he stood 191 cm tall and weighed 94 kilos. Raised on a farm he could do the work of three men. At 17 his wrestling potential was recognized by a Canadian promoter. During the day he worked as a mover to pay for his expenses, at night he kicked ass as the Géant Ferré.
