Written bySayak BasuSports
WWE has always had a special place for tall men who look intimidating and fearsome.
From towering figures to earth-shattering behemoths, these giants have brought to the forefront what we usually find in comics and folklore.
Their superhuman attributes have helped them create a niche in the business.
Here we take a look at the 5 gigantic WWE wrestlers of all time.
World's Largest Athlete
7-foot tall and weighing 400+ pounds, The Big Show, a household name, is one of the most popular WWE wrestlers of all time.
Show doesn't only impress with his size, but also with his performances.
His athleticism is unmatched by any wrestler as large as him.
He is the only wrestler ever to hold the WWE, Extreme Championship Wrestling, and World Championship Wrestling titles.
Everything about him is 'huge'
The Great Khali towered at a staggering 7' 1'".
He looked like an unstoppable giant when he first entered the WWE ring and laid The Undertaker out cold with just a single chop.
After his initiation into WWE, Khali went on a rampage, winning handicapped matches and beating up wrestlers in a display of power.
Khali even became a World Heavyweight Champion in 2007.
The basketball giant who turned to wrestling
Giant Silva was an ex-Brazilian basketball player and was a part of the WWE for a short period of time during the Attitude Era.
Weighing around 380 pounds and with a height of 7' 2", he is one of the largest men to ever step foot inside a WWE ring.
Silva was a member of the faction called Oddities with another giant called Kurrgan.
Andre The Giant
This giant's antics were the stuff of legends
One of the most influential WWE wrestlers of all time, Andre The Giant is an international icon of professional wrestling.
He was a 7' 4", 400 pounds giant who fought some iconic matches with the likes of Hulk Hogan, Big John, and countless other ring titans.
Andre's drinking prowess is legendary-he could drink 120 beers and countless cases of wine in one sitting.
Is this man even human?
8 feet. Yes, you read it right. 8 feet tall.
Giant Gonzales is also an ex-basketball player who forayed into the world of professional wrestling.
Sporting a furry, full-body jumpsuit, Gonzales was one of the most intimidating figures of his day.
He even got a crack at The Undertaker at WrestleMania IX, where he tried to defeat the Deadman using chloroform.
