André The Giant Is Getting A Sweet HBO Biography Titled "He Was A God"

Submitted by: fancylad 1 week ago in Entertainment Sports


Hopefully we'll learn more about André -- he's never gotten a real great bio that was worthy of his legend.

I cant imagine the pain this man must of been in from all that wrestling.  The wear on his joints must have been massive.  He was a great entertainer tho, I'm glad that part is being recognized.

I wonder if they'll talk about Samuel Beckett being his chauffeur when he was a boy.

Gerry1of1 Yeah. They lived in the same town in France. Beckett was the only one in town with a truck -- it was the only vehicle that Andre could fit into.  So Beckett would drive him to and from school everyday.

I will definitely be watching this.  There are some legendary stories about Andre.  My personal favorite is from Arnold Schwarzenegger and how Andre refused to allow him to pay for dinner, so much so that when Arnold tried to pay, Andre simply picked him up and carried him out of the restaurant like a child.
