Salute To Andre The Giant. Six Million Dollar Man.

Andre the Giant. He was 7'4" and 520 pounds!!!! God DYAAAAAAAMNN!!

Here are some pics. Please share your memories and ask your questions in the comments area. And no..I don't have the answer to that one question. But it was probably huge! And I'm sure there's a quote about him somewhere that says, "Oh he was big alright. And the biggest thing about him (pause) was his heart."

Andre' and Ali. Nice.

Andre' with some babes. He looks kinda handsome here don't you think? 30 seconds after this picture was taken "the rapin' began."

In hospital bed. He could so kill her.

As Bigfoot on the Six Million Dollar Man. How did I not know he played Bigfoot until now???

Andre' with his lunch.

And here's his Wiki page.

And remember when Bigfoot threw that huge tree on 6 Million Dollar Man? Jesus Christ!!

Loved the Bigfoot episode. Or episodes. I think it was a 2-parter. Can't recall for sure.

I saw him once in person at a WWF (that's what it was called back then) even around 1984-85. The only one I ever went to. Had tickets by where the wrestlers entered the ring. I was with a guy who played basketball for our HS team. He was around 6'6". He scoffed at all the really "big" guys. Until Andre the Giant walked past us. My friend was literally dumbstruck. He couldn't comprehend how much bigger Andre was. It was like a mountain walked past us.

No mention of The Princess Bride? That was probably his most popular "role". "Hello lady!"

Earl - I'm almost 6'3" and whenever I see someone a bit taller than me it's weird. I can't imagine how huge he looked in person.

Eric - Really?? And I HATE Billy Crystal. He has a new movie coming out in a few weeks that looks so stupid.

I recently saw some YouTube clips where friends said he was a prolific drinker and wasn't even phased after consuming huge amounts of alcohol.

Billy Crystal bugs me too.

Dr Zibbs said...

Tom i think i saw that. And the "turn off your phone" message that is currrently in theaters with billy crystal is so unfunny.

Andre "the Giant" of Champagne as we call him. Do you know how many Hervé Villechaize you could make out of on Andre the Giant. Dozens I would guess.

Dr Zibbs said...

Scope i wonder if they ever met?

When he would drop a deuce, people would run for their lives.
