Killer Khan, who gained notoriety by breaking Andre The Giant’s ankle in a 1981 match, retired from the ring in 1987 and now runs a restaurant in Tokyo.

Khan, whose real name is Masashi Ozawa, “broke” Andre’s ankle after delivering a knee drop off the top rope, although in reality Andre reportedly had broken his ankle getting out of bed.

A money-making feud ensued, with Andre defeating Khan in a Mongolian Stretcher match in November 1981 in Philadelphia.
