Vince McMahon and Andre The Giant were pretty close. They were also close to the same age. Andre sadly died on January 27, 1993 at the age of 46-years-old. He would have been 75 today.

McMahon sent out a tribute to Andre The Giant to celebrate his 75th birthday. The Chairman himself is only one year older than the 8th Wonder Of The World. While calling Andre a “titan,” Vince thanked his old friend who is no longer with us.

A titan of stature, strength, athleticism, and heart. Thinking of my friend Andre the Giant on what would have been his 75th birthday.

WWE has seen plenty of tragedies and sad losses throughout the company’s history. Losing Andre The Giant was certainly a hard one to take. There is a reason why so many tributes remain to his legacy, and it will continue to be celebrated for generations to come.
