Robin Christensen-Roussimoff Facts
- She did not have a great relationship with her father, André, growing up. In an interview, she has stated that she had only seen her father a handful of times as he was always on tour. She would only get a chance to see him if the then-WWF (World Wrestling Federation) was hosting events in the town where she used to live.
- In another interview, she has stated that her earliest memory of her father was at a doctor’s clinic, where he was getting a paternity test. He had initially refused to accept Robin as his daughter because he believed that his acromegaly affliction had rendered him incapable of having a child. Acromegaly was the disorder that was the reason behind his giant size.
- However, once it was proven that Robin was indeed his daughter, he agreed to fund Robin’s life and education. Robin met him for the 2nd time in a court, where he was attending a hearing related to her child support payments.
- She last spoke to her father on the phone during Christmas of 1992. He passed away two months later in his sleep, in a Paris hotel. She only found out about this a month later, from his lawyer. She was so devastated that she could not attend his memorial service.
- Robin is still in touch with WWE, the organization that owes a lot to her father’s stardom. Her father was arguably one of the greatest stars of the wrestling world and helped WWE (then-WWF) become a household name. She maintains a strictly professional relationship with the organization, only receiving royalties whenever WWE uses her father’s name for events, video games, or action figures.
- Robin has stated that she does not like the WWE in its current form as it has almost become a soap opera and the attention has shifted away from the action in the ring to off-stage drama. She has mentioned that WWE has also not had a decent relationship with her, for reasons unknown.
- She has admitted that it has been tough for her to live with her father’s legacy. When people get to know about her, they either back away or try to get close to her to get some financial advantage. For these reasons, she has stated that she stopped dating people.
