1. Andre The Giant – Wrestling
There are giants, then there is Andre the Giant.
Andre the Giant was a French professional wrestler and an old school star of the World Wrestling Federation (WWF).
So, what qualifies him as “giant”? For some anecdotal evidence, Hulk Hogan (pictured below) is 6’7”.
Andre the Giant stood at 7’4” and weighed a whopping… wait for it… 520 lb!
His overwhelming size was a result of acromegaly which, unfortunately, led to an early death at the age of 46.
