  • His drinking ability is the stuff of legends.
  • Truly a god among men...
  • What the hell were they doing with a cooler full of urine?

    For a long car ride through Mississippi around 1980, Blair purchased for Andre "two of the biggest bottles of Crown Royal you could get" and a case of Budweiser...

    Oh, now it makes sense.

    ..plus a Styrofoam cooler to be used as a urinal so they wouldn't have to pull over for bathroom breaks.
  • Sin_City_Superhero: His drinking ability is the stuff of legends.


    He drank himself into a mild diabetic coma at one of the Pittsburgh airport hotels.  My sister (then an EMT) was one of four units dispatched.   First stretcher broke.  Second stretcher had two back boards added and that broke.  Finally just loaded him into the back and strapped him to the floor before going to Sewickley Valley Hospital.
  • It wasn't his fault being the biggest and the strongest. He didn't even exercise.
  • Nobody fills out a holocaust cloak quite like Andre did.
  • My favorite story is when he was in Japan and was on the bus pelting Hulk Hogan with empty beer cans and Hogan had to keep count so he knew when to make a beer run for Andre.
  • Of course, he laughed. To sell the effect of Andre's power, Poffo discretely sliced his own forehead open with a razor blade.

    She laughed. I laughed. The toaster laughed. Then I sliced my forehead open with a razor blade.

    That's a solid story.   I always enjoyed when my Aunt/Uncle would take me to Civic Arena to watch some wrasslin.   Bob Backlund, Andre, Big John Studdard, SD Jones......
  • a relative was friends with frank williams. williams was one of the stumble bums who would lose 99% of their matches to whatever star was hot or up and coming or just fill out the regional card. he'd be in a 3 guys against andre match and andre would throw all 3 of the guys into a corner and crush them. anyway i was about 10-12 when i knew williams  for a few years and i'd ask williams about andre just like i'm sure every boy did and he didn't mention all the drinking and stuff but just said andre was very nice but a busy guy.
