Born Lionel Giroux in 1935 in Saint-Jérôme, Quebec, Canada, Giroux was a midget wrestler who went under the ring name of Little Beaver. Standing just 4 feet 4 inches in height, Giroux was a wrestler at a very young age, and in 1950 aged 15 he caught the eye of promoters in his native province. With fellow midget wrestler, Sky Low Low, Giroux became a big attraction, and the comedy aspect of modern wrestling was partly established by him. Giroux retired from the ring, aged 52, following an appearance at WrestleMania III. During the 1987 bout, Giroux suffered a bad back injury which forced him to quit the sport. Giroux was named Midget Wrestler of the Year for 1973 by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, he was inducted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2003, and he also won two National Wrestling Alliance World Midgets Championships. Giroux died on December 4th, 1995, at the age of 60.
