    Andre The Giant

    Vince McMahon and other top guys who worked for WWE always claimed Andre was just a big sweet teddybear in reality, but i've read and seen in shoot interviews where some wrestlers said he actually had a bad attitude and bullied a lot of people. I read that he tried bullying Bad News Brown but that when Bad News stood up to Andre he was afraid and backed down. So what do you believe about Andre?

    Vince and others made it sound like he was totally a nice guy without a mean bone in his body. IDK what he was really like i'm just asking...If he did some of the other things i've heard about then it seems like he was a total jerk.

    again, i have no idea i'm just asking what others here opinions are.

    It seems he just disliked certain people & liked others & could be a total dick.

    He got the Freebirds fired just after they arrived in 1984 by bad mouthing them to the office for instance, ok they were unprofessional- but they could have been given a warning to change.

    I don't think he ever tried pushing Bad News around, as Allen had a rep as a legit shooter & somebody not to mess with, Andre made a racist comment not aimed at Allen on the NJPW tour bus in either 1980 or 1981 & Bad News heard it & told him to shut up which he did.

    Allen said he never had any problem with him after that aside from him crapping on him in Mexico in 1992 which Allen laughed about- but they were always on decent terms after the bus incident.

    Kamala said Andre tried messing with him, so Kamala pulled a knife or gun on him & they never had any trouble after that, but he did not like Andre at all.

    I saw this in Kamala's shoot interview, Kamala said during a match Andre shoved him or something and called him a ''dumb son of a bitch'' so after the match backstage Kamala went to Andre and told him if he ever did that again he would blow his head off. BTW, Kamala seems like an extremely nice and humble guy in the shoot interview. Also, Andre was arrested around 1989 for assaulting a cameraman.

    The funniest thing in the Kamala shoot was his wife thinking he had really won something like $100,000, in one of Verne's battle royals. He really should have smartened her up.

    He was a very good man. I know this. Because my mother always taught me never to love a bad man! Well I love Andre. Therefore, he was a good man. RIP my good friend. You are forever missed.

    I've heared reports from The Iron Shiek where he states parents with their kids would approach Andre for autographs at Airports and Andrew would tell them to "go **** themselves". Shiek even goes as far as saying Andre was a "No good son of a bitch, piece of **** French ***got"....and Shiek NEVER usually badmouths people...

    I've seen all the shoots. I don't understand why Sheik feels the need to tell straight up lies about someone who was a generally kind human being who'd risk life and treetrunk limb to give a kid an autograph. Andre is no longer here to defend himself but I assure you, nothing he says about the big man is truth. It's all lies. I bet my life on it.

    Bad News did beat him up for real in WWF one night, Owen was being a bit of a mark about losing clean in his hometown ala Bret- so they worked out a cheap finish compromise.

    Owen after their matches would keep getting up & leaping about, so Allen told him not to do it again or he would shoot on him, Owen did it & Allen kicked his ass.

    That to me is inexcusable for even a heel to behave in this way. Without the fans, they are NOTHING. If I were a dad and a celbrity did that to my kid, I'd punch them out.

    well in flairs defence american wrestling fans are crazy when it comes to trying to get wrestlers autographs at hotels/airports etc. eventually the wrestlers get sick of it i suppose. i have seen about 40 people following a-train around manhattan when he was then a jobber, same thing with rene dupree. in europe i have seen bret hart walk through a busy mall and not one person approaching him

    no what you said originally was that "all i can say is he was probly one of the most naturally stong people of all time", thats a huge statement to make when you have no proof of his strength, especially when we have pro-wrestlers like mark henry not to mention people like Magnus Ver Magnasson, Magnus Samuelsson and Mariusz Pudzianowski

    sure andre was strong, but those stories about him turning cars upside down with 6 fully grown adults inside are just that......stories

    I believe Andre possessed natural above average RAW strength. He used to move friends cars from spot to spot while they were inside somewheres having a drink or a meal. He did that for fun as a joke on his friends.

    Imagine had he focused on strength training, he'd be one of the strongest men to ever live. He had bought all the equipment for lifting weights but never used it. He didn't feel he needed to for wrestling nor did he think he had to keep his body in perfect shape.

    Afterall, he was a natural freak. In size and performance when he'd toss you around in that ring.

    Ken Patera who wrestled him put him over as being strong. I think it's safe to say that Patera knows more about human strength than any of us posting. And of course he knew Andre better than any of us.

    Patera is sadly as full of crap as Angle, Jake & Sheik.

    The guy still pretends he won an Olympic medal, when he did not even place. He also still claims he was fitted up over the McDonalds incident, despite the fact the average person could not have lifted & hurled a huge boulder through a window, or beat the crap out of several cops.

    When he died in 1993, Billy Graham paying tribute said Andre had exceptional pulling power, but was not much as it regards pushing & lifting people.

    from talking around, people who knew Andre as a friend, had a very good friend,

    people who thought of Andre as a good person and treated Andre well, were treated well by Andre ..

    and also

    there were those he had to become rude to

    so in my opinion, it's like anyone else, some people like you, some people hate you

    Reputations are political. I for one do NOT believe everything in "The Self-Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior" DVD... Andre is a very marketable throwback character, even today, and it helps the WWE to cast of of their true legends in a favorable light. Have you noticed that despite the LARGE amount of animosity between Vince and Hulk Hogan, Hulk is still depicted as the hero of pro wrestling by the WWE?

    Say what you will about Vince, but he is very good about keeping the important things in perspective from a marketing standpoint.
