The 8th Wonder of the World

Spread the love

Today, Andre the Giant ReAction figures arrived. He was a superstar #prowrestler in the #worldwrestlingfederation and called the 8th Wonder of the World back when I was a kid in the early 80s. He was known by many names including the Gentle Giant, the Giant, and Géant Ferré. Standing 7’4″ and weighing 520 lbs, he towered over other wrestlers. He also acted in TV and film with his most notable role of Fezzik in The Princess Bride and appeared in multiple video games. This barely scratches the surface. Sadly on Jan 27, 1993, passed away leaving a Gentle Giant legacy that is something to behold (watch the documentary).
