Quotes

André the Giant: It's difficult everywhere I go. They don't build things for big people. They build everything for blind people, for crippled people, for some other people but not for big people. So we have to fit in there and it's not too easy all the time.

Glad to see an honest bio
27 April 2018 | by madwand6See all my reviews

I've always hated "professional" wrestling as an adult, but I was young and ignorant enough to have occasionally seen Andre on my territory's TV stations and I was fascinated by him. As they said, it was just enough sightings to keep you interested and wondering.

This was a very touching tribute to him and what I most liked about it was that they don't try to hide the fact that wrestling is fake and all his fights were staged. Seeing Hulk Hogan and others tearing up over their fellow actor's death was very emotional and real.
