Andre the Giant, we hardly knew ye
« on: January 01, 2019, 10:43:01 PM »
Just caught the last 40 odd minutes of the documentary on Sky Atlantic. It was great, and quite moving. My son burst into tears when it was discussing Andre's death. You couldn't help but be moved by his "minder" choking back the tears.
I guess his power as a wrestler was the fact that he was basically an immovable object. Fucking huge. Hats off to Hulk Hogan, who lifted Andre over his head.
I'll have to watch the whole thing now.

Right over the head brother, held him there for the world to see, all 700lbs just ask  the 93 000 in the Silverdome. He died three days later. HH

It's excellent. I loved how Andre could down 5 bottles of wine at dinner, even when he was on a diet.

Did it mention that playwright Samuel Beckett (waiting for Godot etc.) used to give him a lift to school every day?

Shoulders?-Stomach!

That's nothing when you look at middle aged women.

Go on, look at them.

Look at them you dirty fuck.
