What a crazy throwback from the 70’s. 
Here’s the “8th Wonder of the World” André the Giant, using my 315lb grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia as a booster seat and making my granddad look like a little boy. 
They were the best of friends, wrestled nightly, tough as hell and as you can see by their smiles and open energy - they lived like to the absolute fullest. 
My grandfather died when I boy so I never got to know him as a man. Would’ve loved to have raised a tequila with these men. 
Would’ve also loved to have wrestled them too - those would’ve been fun ass kickin’s for me to take 😉
