Article on Andre The Giant's Last Years

Pretty informative article on the last years of Andre the Giant's life.  I sure learned a lot that I didn't know about him.

really interesting   I had no idea he was wrestling in those final years   Do you think he had money problems??  I thought he had to make a ton since he was just brought in for a match or 2 but maybe just the opposite since he did not work 300+ nights a year like most do now

on the Bill Simmons podcast with David Shoemaker (just type in Bill Simmons Podcast Soundcloud to listen) they talk about Andres last few matches and how much time he spent just hanging on the ropes.

Sad to see such a man die so young.
