Big Show isn't even 7 foot. He's like 6'9 max but wears big soled shoes.

I loved pro wrestling when I was growing up, when Big Show was not Big Show but he was The Giant from WCW listed at 7'4!

I read Hogan's book when it came out, he spoke about how much Andre drank and how truly tragic his life was.

When Andre needed back surgery they had to use his insane tolerance for alcohol to judge how much anesthetic to give him since there was no precedent for a guy that size.

Next to Shaq, both wearing dress shoes, not wrestling boots. He is 6'11 at the very least, 7' really isn't that wild of a claim.
