Andre Roussiemoff was a Frenchman born in the forties with a disorder often referred to as gigantism. this disorder floods the body with growth hormones. By the age of 12, Andre was the size of a full grown man and was therefore very useful on his father's farm but before long he got into wrestling, where he found fame. He went to Canada and became Andre the Giant.

The punishment inevitable in professional wrestling plus the disorder of gigantism left Andre suffering great and constant pain. His manager therefore refused to allow André to keep wrestling. This damaged their relationship so that when André the Giant died in 1993 of congestive heart failure, he did so alone, to the grief of his manager. Andre was only 46.
