-Kelly Klein is 36.

-The late Andre the Giant (Andre Rene Roussimoff) died on January 28, 1993 at age 46 of congestive heart failure. The date of his death is listed incorrectly as January 27 in many places, but I’m deferring to historian and author Pat Laprade, who co-wrote the book “The Eighth Wonder Of The World: The True Story of Andre The Giant.”
