5: Andre the Giant

It’s hard to imagine a wrestler more memorable or larger than life than Andre the Giant. From stories of brute strength to drinking prowess, the "Eighth Wonder of the World" captivated people wherever he went. Standing at 6 feet 10 inches tall though billed at 7 feet 4 inches, he had a presence unlike no other and he really was a real life giant much like his in-ring moniker suggested. While there are countless stories and legends that have been rehashed over time, in this episode, Lanny Poffo shares stories about Andre that have never been heard before! He had a personal relationship with the Giant and what he unfolds cannot be heard or found anywhere else. This is not an episode to miss!

Plus: Lanny opens up about his brother Randy's "cream of the crop" promo, why he and Bam Bam Bigelow almost got into a fight, the rumor about Brutus 'The Barber' Beefcake shaving his head against his wishes at WrestleMania 6, the origin of The Genius character, his Mount Rushmore of best wrestlers of all time, and so much more!
