Synopsis by Mark Deming
French-born actor and athlete Andre the Giant (real name André René Roussimoff) was a literally a "bigger than life" figure who stood over seven feet tall, weighed 500 pounds, and had a personality to match his massive frame. Andre was an international star in professional wrestling prior to his death in 1993, and this DVD collects highlights from his career with the World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment). WWE: Andre the Giant features rare footage of the giant squaring off against Hulk Hogan, The Iron Sheik, Big John Studd, the Masked Superstar, Gorilla Monsoon, and many more.
