4. Andre The Giant

Raised in a small French farming village, Andre lived a quiet, pastoral life as a child. Born with acromegaly, a disorder that causes bones to grow at an accelerated rate, Andre stood 6-foot-3 and weighed 200 pounds by the time he was 12 years old.

Andre decided to use his size to his advantage, and entered professional wrestling, he became a hit in every territory, and was noticed by WWE, where he became an iconic giant of wrestling.
