He was at least 208 cm (6 ft 10 in) tall. His great size was a result of excessive growth hormone, a condition known as pituitary gigantism, and led to him being dubbed "The Eighth Wonder of the World." Born to French parents of Bulgarian and Polish descent in a small farm near Ussy-sur-Marne, he left home in his adolescence to become a pro wrestler. He was billed at a height of 7 ft 4 in (224 cm) and sometimes 7 ft 5 in (226 cm) with a weight which ranged from 380 to 550 pounds. His correct height is contested, but he was legitimately measured at the age of twenty-four at 6 feet 9 3/4 inches tall (208 cm). The great exaggeration of his height probably comes from the fact that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was the tallest renowned athlete in the world at the time at 7 ft 2 in (219 cm), and promoters wanted to bill Roussimoff as the biggest athlete in the world. Nevertheless, the sight of him alone was enough to draw huge crowds during a time when there were only a handful of wrestlers over 6 ft 6 in (198 cm); his condition which included symptoms such as enlarged hands and feet and exaggerated facial feathres (acromegaly) likely aided the visual perception of him appearing larger than he actually was. After touring the world with different promotions for many years (mostly in Montreal for Édouard Carpentier), he was signed by the then World Wide Wrestling Federation. On March 26, 1973, Roussimoff made his WWF debut, defeating Buddy Wolfe in New York's Madison Square Garden. He also dabbled in acting in the 1970s and 1980s, playing a Sasquatch (aka "Bigfoot") on the 1970s television series The Six Million Dollar Man and the character Fezzik in The Princess Bride. By the time WWF chairman Vincent K. McMahon began to expand his promotion to the national level in the early 1980s, Roussimoff wrestled exclusively for the WWF in the USA, while still holding international engagements. Roussimoff was a very imposing figure - it is said that he never tested the full extent of his true strength because he was afraid of the damage that it might cause. Despite the hype, many wrestlers have stated that while André might not have known his full strength, he was always easy to work with in the ring and always protected his opponents. It is also said that Roussimoff could drink an entire case of beer and not feel so much as a buzz. There are also stories of André drinking cases of wine (night before Wrestlemania III) until he passed out in a hotel lobby, and a sheet was simply thrown over him, as no one had the strength to move his massive body unaided. However, there is no proof that any of these stories are true; and that while André was certainly a legendary drinker who loved to have a good time eating and drinking with friends, wrestling is famous for tall tales, and this could be simply another tall tale. He was offered a professional American football contract with the Washington Redskins after a tryout in 1974 and seriously considered it before turning it down, reasoning that he could make far more money wrestling. Roussimoff was one of the WWF's most beloved "babyfaces" throughout the 1970s and early '80s, although the legend that for fourteen years he never lost by pinfall or submission in a WWF ring before being pinned by Hulk Hogan on March 29, 1987 at WrestleMania III. However Roussimoff had lost cleanly in matches outside of the parameters of the WWF; a pinfall loss in Mexico to El Canek in 1984 and in Japan a submission loss to Antonio Inoki in 1986, as well as a controversial no-contest finish against Akira Maeda, who used heel shoot-style tactics to dominate the match. He also went sixty-minute time limit draws with the two other major world champions of the day, Harley Race and Nick Bockwinkel. Roussimoff had memorable clashes all over the world with a variety of tough, rugged opponents. Among his chief rivals in the ring: The Sheik (who gained a deathmatch win over the Frenchman in 1974 with the help of his fireball), Abdullah the Butcher, Stan Hansen, Ernie Ladd, and a young Hulk Hogan, who first met Roussimoff in 1978 during his rookie years in the deep South. Hogan and André would go on to have one of the great WWF feuds of 1980, peaking in front of 36,295 fans at the Showdown at Shea event on August 9, 1980 in Flushing, New York's Shea Stadium. One of André's most bitter feuds pitted him against the Mongolian terror Killer Khan, who was managed by Fred Blassie. According to the storyline, Khan had broken André's ankle during a match in Rochester, New York by leaping off the top rope and crashing down upon it with his knee-drop. (Actually, André had broken his ankle getting out of bed.) After a stay at Beth-Israel Hospital in Boston, Roussimoff returned with payback on his mind. On November 14, 1981 at the Philadelphia Spectrum, Roussimoff exacted revenge by destroying Killer Khan in what was billed as a "Mongolian Stretcher Match," in which the loser must be taken to the dressing room on a stretcher. Another memorable Roussimoff feud involved a man who considered himself to be "the true giant" of wrestling: the 6 ft 7 in, 364-pound Big John Studd. Throughout the early to mid-1980s, Roussimoff and Studd fought all over the world, battling to try and determine who the real giant of wrestling was. In December 1984, Studd took the feud to a new level, when he and partner Ken Patera knocked out Roussimoff during a televised tag team match and proceeded to cut off Roussimoff's famous long locks. Roussimoff had the last laugh at the first WrestleMania on March 31, 1985 at Madison Square Garden. Roussimoff conquered Studd in a $15,000 Body-slam Challenge. After slamming Studd, he attempted to give the $15,000 prize to the fans, before having the bag stolen from him by his future manager Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. The following year, at WrestleMania 2 (April 7, 1986), Roussimoff continued to display his dominance by winning a twenty-man battle royal that featured top NFL stars and wrestlers. Roussimoff eliminated future wrestling legend Bret Hart to win the contest. Afterwards, Roussimoff continued his feud with Studd and King Kong Bundy. Roussimoff was suspended after a no-show; he returned under a mask as "The Giant Machine" part of a team with "Big Machine" (Robert Windham) and "Super Machine" (Bill Eadie). (The Machines gimmick was copied from New Japan Pro Wrestling character "Super Strong Machine," played by Japanese wrestler Junji Hirata.) Soon afterwards, Giant Machine disappeared, and Roussimoff was reinstated, to the approval of Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. Roussimoff was turned heel in 1987 so that he could face Hulk Hogan for the WWF Championship in the main event of WrestleMania III. In early 1987, Hogan was presented a trophy for being the WWF World Heavyweight Champion for three years. Roussimoff came out to congratulate him. Shortly afterwards, Roussimoff was presented a slightly smaller trophy for being "undefeated in the WWF for fifteen years." In actuality, Roussimoff had suffered a handful of countout and disqualification losses in the WWF but had never been pinned or forced to submit in a WWF ring. Hogan came out to congratulate Roussimoff and ended up being the focal point of the interview. A visibly annoyed Roussimoff walked out in the midst of Hogan's speech. Then, on an edition of "Piper's Pit," Hogan was confronted by Heenan. Heenan announced that his new protege was Roussimoff. Roussimoff then challenged Hogan to a title match at WrestleMania III, ripping the t-shirt and crucifix off of Hogan. It was at WrestleMania III that the public first really saw the pain that Roussimoff was going through. By this stage his body was weighed in at about 525 pounds, and his bones and joints were finding it hard supporting such a huge weight. Hogan won the match after dropping Roussimoff with a bodyslam, followed by Hogan's running legdrop finisher. (Years later, Hogan stated that Roussimoff was so heavy, he felt more like 700 pounds.) Another famous tall tale about the match is that "no one knew" if André would lose the match. While mostly false, WWE owner Vince McMahon has stated in the past that he believed if Hogan had either purposely or accidentally disrespected André that night, there was no way André would have allowed Hogan to win the match, no matter what had been agreed to. Aside from that possibility, André had agreed to lose the match some time before, mostly for health reasons. Before being signed to the WWF, Roussimoff had wrestled in Japan. It was here that a doctor diagnosed Roussimoff with his condition and told him that those with the same problem were generally lucky to reach forty. Roussimoff never told his family of the diagnosis, and his closest friends believe that it was this motivation that led Roussimoff to live life to the fullest until he died. The Hogan-André face off at WrestleMania III was likely the most highly anticipated professional wrestling matchup in history - the apex of wrestling's most recent golden era. The event, held at the Pontiac Silverdome, had millions watching on pay-per-view and established great permanent value in the WrestleMania franchise. 93,137 fans turned out as the WWF sold many standing room only tickets and added seats in the alleys to exceed the Silverdome's capacity of 80,331 . Hogan defeated Roussimoff in what some consider a passing of the torch from Roussimoff, wrestling's biggest star of the 1970s, to Hogan, wrestling's biggest star of the '80s. The feud between Roussimoff and Hogan simmered, even as Roussimoff's health declined. Roussimoff won the WWF title from Hogan on February 5, 1988 in a match where appointed referee Dave Hebner was "detained backstage," and a replacement, his "evil" twin brother Earl, made a three count on Hogan while his shoulders were off of the mat. Roussimoff then "sold" the title to "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, and the title was vacated. This was shown on the WWF's NBC program The Main Event (usually seen Saturdays as Saturday Night's Main Event). André famously mistakenly called the Federation's Championship the "WWF Tag Team Championship," perhaps foreshadowing his reign with Haku. At WrestleMania IV, Roussimoff and Hulk Hogan fought to a double DQ in a WWF title tournament match. Afterwards, Roussimoff and Hogan's feud died down after a brutal steel cage match held at WrestleFest on July 31, 1988 in Milwaukee. During this time, André also became involved in a heated feud with "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan. André Roussimoff in a police mugshot after being arrested for assaulting a cameramanAndré's next major feud was vs. Jake "The Snake" Roberts. In this storyline, it was said André was deathly afraid of snakes, something Roberts exposed on Saturday Night's Main Event when he threw his snake, Damien, on the frightened André; as a result, André suffered a (kayfabe) mild heart attack and vowed revenge. During the next few weeks, Roberts frequently walked to ringside during André's matches, causing him to run from the ring in fright (since he knew what was inside the bag). Throughout their feud (which culiminated at WrestleMania V), Roberts constantly used Damien to gain a psychological edge over the much larger and stronger André. André won the World Tag Team Championship with his partner Haku from Demolition on December 13, 1989. Managed by Bobby Heenan, André and Haku were known as The Colossal Connection. They lost their titles at WrestleMania VI back to Demolition on April 1, 1990. After the match a furious Heenan slapped Andre, and he responded by knocking Heenan out, much to the delight of the fans. Andre went into the match as a heel, and left as a face. After that he went back to Japan, this time for All Japan Pro Wrestling, where he briefly teamed with owner Giant Baba. André starred in several movies towards the end of his career, most notably as Fezzik in 1987's The Princess Bride. He had a cameo appearance in 1984's Conan the Destroyer as Dagoth, the resurrected horned giant beast, who is killed by Conan, the character portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger. In his final film, he appeared in something of a cameo role as a circus giant in the comedy Trading Mom, which was not released until the year after his death. The disease that granted him his immense size also began to take its toll on his body. By the late 1980s, André was in constant, near-crippling pain, and his heart struggled to pump blood throughout his massive body. When he was not in front of a camera, he was usually in a wheelchair. He stopped competing entirely in the very early 1990s due to the increasing pain that his illness was causing him. His last U.S television appearance was on WCW's "Clash of the Champions 20" special that aired on TBS on September 2, 1992. He did not compete, the appearance consisting solely of an interview. *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** * --------- 4.0 Moves --------- Here is the legend for all the moves: O: Circle X: Cross T: Triangle : Square H: Head damage A: Arms damage B: Body damage L: Legs damage Sta: Stamina requirements Mom: Momentum charge Blood: Blood move Dirty: Dirty move Fav: Favorite move Pin: Pin move Sub: Submission move --------------------- 4.1) Standard actions --------------------- Ring In Move Over The Rope Ring Out Move Roll Down Taunt: -

I hope it can help you to decide if to buy it or not. You can find this review on Gamefaqs.com, the first free source of faqs all over the web. Time to walk the ring one more time! Here I am, to talk about another game about the WWE universe. But is that a good game? On a first look this game can be taken as an update of his predecessor, Smackdown! vs RAW, but it offers more on every aspect, like gameplay and value that you will like it. Keep reading, if you want to know more. Graphics: 9/10 Every game they improve the graphic. Smackdown! vs RAW 2006 is no exception, they scan the wrestler faces, and you can see the results with your own eyes. The only thing I don't like, it's a problem I see every WWE game. I am talking about the "create a wrestler" section. I know that a Playstation 2 has some power limits, but I hate when I see my creation almost perfect, and when it goes to ring is graphically downgraded to spare console power. It's simply frustrating (if you have a lot of created wrestlers like me.) But the arenas, detailed, well done... but they looks exactly like the last year arenas. Another good addition to the graphic side are the entrances, this year they are very well detailed, and almost all of them are marvellous reproductions of real WWE superstars entrances. With some exceptions, of course (Batista and others). The create an entrance section this year gives you more tools to prepare a better entrance, allowing you to choose lights, pyros and moves for every section of the stadium. That is a very good thing, but when I prepared my first entrance, it took almost one hour to check every single camera position! Sound: 10/10 This time you will hear a lot of voices from your favourite wrestlers, music are very good, and entrance music are reproduced very well, in an almost perfect way. This time is a professional work that won't disappoint you in any way. Unfortunately the commentary can't be described as above. It will give you a bad feeling of repetition, hearing all the times you do a finishing move the same words and phrases over and over again. Controls: 9/10 Controls are well distributed on the gamepad, and they work fast. The only thing I never liked is the targeting system. Almost every time I try to target a different opponent I target my own partner, or the referee or even the wrong enemy. In a single match it's not a real problem, but on multi-opponent matches, like the Royal Rumble, it's a real pain. Gameplay: 8/10 No doubt that Smackdown! vs RAW 2006 is a really great game. So, why I gave only 8 points on gameplay? It's sad to say that, but... if you play that game alone, it's not too fun. The core of the entire game, the season, it's made by only a few episodes. You will play two episodes (not chosen randomly), the Royal Rumble episode, and then the Wrestlemania Episode (and not for all wrestlers, some of them
