• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 56th birthday of Old School WWF/WCW Veteran Giant González aka El Gigante (Real name: Jorge González).
When Ted Turner realized that the giant wasn’t gonna make it in the NBA for the Atlanta Hawks, he offered him the proper training to become a Professional Wrestler.
El Gigante then went on to work for World Championship Wrestling from May 1990 until January 1992, before joining the World Wrestling Federation in January 1993.
His proudest moment was showing up uninvited during the 1993 Royal Rumble match and eliminating The Undertaker.
After the Taker rivalry ended at SummerSlam, they tried to turn him babyface (similar to what they did with André after the WrestleMania VI match), but for whatever reason didn’t renew his contract when the old one expired in October 1993.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
January 31, 1966 – September 22, 2010
