Andr Ren Roussimoff (May 19, 1946 January 27, 1993), best known as Andr the Giant, was a French professional wrestler and actor.

He famously feuded with Hulk Hogan, culminating at WrestleMania III in 1987. His best-remembered film role was that of Fezzik, the giant in The Princess Bride.[2] His size was a result of gigantism caused by excess growth hormone, which later resulted in acromegaly. It also led to his being called "The Eighth Wonder of the World".

In the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now known as WWE), Andr was a one-time WWF World Heavyweight Champion and a one-time WWF Tag Team Champion. In 1993, Andr was the first ever wrestler to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 1993.
