In case you missed it, the Andre The Giant documentary debuted on HBO last night...and it rocked!
Director Jason Hehir created a first-rate look at the legendary wrestling icon. With appearances by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vince McMahon, Billy Crystal, Hulk Hogan, and more...there was incredible insight into wrestling's largest performer.
At one point, WWE Hall-Of-Famer (and a legend in his own right) Ric Flair said that he hung out with Andre one night where Andre drank over 100 beers.
We get a great glimpse at Andre's wrestling career, but also see his successful foray into acting, and his becoming a pop culture icon.
This revealing movie is a really interesting view into this larger-than-life performer and human being. If you're a wrestling fan, this is a MUST watch. And if you are simply interested in a tale about a once-in-a-lifetime entertainer, this doc is up your alley, too.
Check out Andre The Giant on HBO!
