#AndreTheGiantFacts: Twitter Remembers Andre The Giant 22 Years After His Death

Stories about Andre the Giant border on legends. They are incredible, unbelievable, and for the most part, absolutely true. Twitter is celebrating this larger-than-life man today, the 22nd anniversary of his death, by sharing some amazing Andre The Giant facts.

Ok, so Daniel Tosh and Twitter may be giving Andre The Giant the “Bill Brasky” treatment with the hashtag #AndreTheGiantFacts, but there is no reason to exaggerate stories about the world’s greatest wrestler.

Here are some true stories about the man, the myth, the giant.

Andre The Giant had HUGE hands.

By age 12, he was over 6 feet tall and weighed more than 200 pounds.

Andre The Giant was one of the few people to make people like Arnold Schwarzenneger look small.

He was so big that he made The Rock look like a child.

Andre the Giant was the first wrestler inducted into the hall of fame.

Andre The Giant went undefeated for 15 years starting in 1972. He was finally beaten when Hulk Hogan body slammed him at WrestleMania 3.

Andre The Giant was also a poet laureate. (Not really, but he did have a knack for rhymes.)

RIP Andre The Giant.
