Bruce Lee was 5 feet 8 and about 130 pounds.
Andre the Giant was 7 feet tall and 525 pounds.
The latter could move cars bare handed. Indeed, he could flip cars with several men in side, and lift the front end of a car (the heaviest part of a car). Image
Andre would challenge people in an audience to real shoot wrestling matches. Surprisingly, he had people take him up on these challenges. Andre always won. He was the general of the lockeroom, and if you ticked him off, pity on you. Only a few wrestlers could potentially beat
him in a fight (One of these being Haku, literally the most feared man in professional wrestling. His picture is below). With that level of size and power, Andre was a force to be reckoned with.

Could Bruce Lee take him?

Bruce Lee was schooled in several forms of Kung Fu (and Image
even boxing) before developing his own martial art, Jeet Kun Do. Bruce Lee saw that there were problems with martial arts, with many dojos focusing more on form rather than what would really work in a fight (a sentiment still shared by some martial artists today, when it comes
to martial arts dojos in the US today). Bruce wanted to make a new fighting style that was focused on results, not form, and sure enough, its still one of the best martial arts in the world today.
Along with this, Bruce Lee was incredibly fast and far more powerful than his
size would indicate, and he was in top physical shape. Andre was as well, but as Honky Tonk Man, a legendary wrestler who worked with Andre, said, Andre tired easily.…
Bruce thus would have a speed, stamina and fighting style advantage. However, Andre did have animal strength, as well as a 400+ plus weight advantage. This would be the equivalent of a 200 pound martial artist fighting a giant who is close to 800 pounds. That's a tall order for
anyone! But could Bruce do it? One way he might be able to pull it off is to drop his knee. I don't know exactly how this works, but there are martial arts moves where you can severely damage a person's knee with a kick. Whether this breaks the knee or dislocates it, either way
the biggest man in the world would drop like a stone. The pain will make enormous men cry. Along with this, Bruce Lee wont tire as easily as Andre the Giant, and he'll be much faster. Given this, as well as his superior fighting style, I must conclude that...
