Andre the Giant

Powerful

The Eighth Wonder of the World.

Client Since 2001.

Andre the Giant was a French wrestler and actor. Most famous for his size, by the age of 17, he had reached a height of 6’7″ and, as such, began honing his wrestling skills. Later, he moved to the North America and became one of the most popular wrestlers in the WWF. By that time, he had reached 7’4″ and 500 pounds. Unfortunately, his size caused him frequent health problems and he passed away in 1993.

15 years undefeated

41 liters of beer consumed in six hours. This earned Andre the tagline of the “World’s Greatest Drunk.”

$400,000 – Andre’s annual salary (about $2,000,000 in today’s money)

1993 – inducted to WWE Hall of Fame

520 pounds – Andre’s weight upon his death

"I don’t like to speak badly of people. I have grown up thinking and being told that if you cannot say something nice about someone, you should not say anything at all. But I must break that rule in this case because I hate Hulk Hogan very much. He is a big ugly goon and I want to squash his face."
