At 7 feet 4 inches tall and 520 pounds, Andre the Giant was arguably the most intimidating professional wrestler of all time. Now, a new HBO documentary will explore Andre the Giant’s life inside and outside the ring, from his wrestling and film career to his infamous “drinking binges” and the darker side of what it meant to be “The Eighth Wonder of the World.”
“Andre The Giant” will premiere April 10 on HBO, two days after WrestleMania 34, the premiere event of WWE, the company that Andre helped build into a household brand in the 1980s.
The new trailer takes viewers through Andre’s early days, all the way to his declining health as the body he was so famous for began to break down.
