LARGER THAN LIFE


Pro wrestling legend Andre the Giant was billed at 7-foot-4. He was closer to 6-foot-11.

But one thing’s for certain: Andre was larger than life.

Here’s the trailer for HBO’s upcoming documentary on Andre, and also a video compilation of him being body-slammed.

Andre was most memorably body-slammed by Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania III in 1987, but it wasn’t the first time. It wasn’t even the first time Hogan did it. But it didn't happen often.

Here’s hoping HBO does Andre justice. He was one of a kind.
