I look at Hogan and think: "Yeah, that guy sure did a lot of cocaine in the 80s", and this very same man said no one could keep up with Andre, thats how you know Andre was a real drinker.

My dad met him in Baghdad (if I remember right) in the early 60's. He was doing some wrestling event there. My old man said when he shook his hand that he couldn't see his own hand because Andre's was so big it engulfed his! My old man was 6'1, about 210 at the time. He was a giant & my old man said he was very kind. RIP.

Big man, big legend. A lot of blood too to have to absorb the alcohol, let alone the size of his liver. RIP Andre.

Modern Drunkard magazine's patron saint!

And possibly the reason they've discontinued the second "Clash of the Tightest" I reckon. With Andre in that series, there's no real contest.

Can HBO change the title, just be honest and say he was an alcoholic.
