HBO Documentary on Andre the Giant
« on: February 14, 2017, 02:22:04 pm »

going to do one of their shows on the life of Andre the Giant.   Andre never held a singles belt.  Vince Sr got him for next to nothing from promoter in Canada who did not know what to do with him.  Vince Sr figured it out pretty quickly.  Just send him into all the different promotions for just a short time and let him bring in the big houses and then on to the next promotion.  They are just starting the documentary now according to Bill Simmons.  Simmons (who is a huge fan) says this is the one 30 for 30 he has always wanted to do.

I thought it was an HBO documentary?  Either way I'm very excited.  Always wanted to hear his story in a modern documentary.
