WWE Hall of Famer Andre The Giant really lived up to his name. The Frenchman weighed an impressive 520lbs (236kg) and stood at a staggering 7ft 4inches (224cm).
Andre debuted for WWE back in 1973. However, a clip has emerged online of a much leaner Andre working a match (sort of) back in 1968.
@allan_cheapshot shared the following clip of Andre wrestling a man dressed up as Batman. The clip originally aired on French TV in May 1968.

Since then Meltzer has commented on the clip, adding that Andre was 21-years-old at the time it was filmed.
Seeing Andre with this leaner figure is certainly very interesting.
