• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 74th birthday of Old School World Wrestling Federation Legend “The Eighth Wonder of the World” André The Giant (Real name: André Roussimoff).
The 7ft 2in (billed as 7ft 4in) Giant wrestled for various territories during the 60s, 70s, 80s & early 90s, but most famously for Vince McMahon Sr.’s World Wide Wrestling Federation since 1973 and later for Vince McMahon Jr.’s World Wrestling Federation.
During his time in the WWF, André wrestled at the first 6 WrestleManias, most famously main eventing WrestleMania III against “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan in front of 93,173 fans at the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan.
The most famous giant in professional wrestling history became the very first ever inductee into the WWF Hall of Fame (now known as WWE Hall of Fame) in 1993, only two months after he passed away.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & R.I.P.
May 19, 1946 – January 27, 1993
• Search For Shad Gaspard Resumed
Former WWE wrestler Chris Masters passed by the Marina Del Rey beach this morning, where he saw that a small boat and a helicopter were searching for Shad.
Went by the Venice/Marina beach twice today. This morning there was a small boat and eventually a low flying helicopter searching. Just went back now with @TheRealMorrison and @TheTayaValkyrie and there was a lifeguard on a jet ski still searching.

He went back there a couple of hours ago for the second time, with John Morrison and Taya Valkyrie by his side. He claimed that a lifeguard is still searching for the former WWE wrestler.
I’m still in shock about it. Standing on the beach remembering times we spent with Shad- it hit me how many lives he’s affected with his constant positive energy. Is there anything more important than creating happiness? https://t.co/zADZ8IoEHR
