Did you know…

There was a French wrestler that looked like Shrek!

Maurice Tillet in his heyday was the “French Angel”. He was a wrestler from France who had a rare disease called acromegaly, that causes the pituitary gland to produce excess amounts of growth hormone… Not so funny now eh?!

As an early American Wrestling Association star and shortly before he died, Tillet had masks modeled after his face. Allegedly the animators of Shrek based the model of the Shrek after one of those masks!

What do you think of the similarities?
