From what I know of him, I'd like to think he'd be smiling at the recognition.

I've got to argue this. Everyone knows this title was decided back at Wrestlemania V, when Jake Roberts beat Andre via countout. Unless Andre already held the honour back then, and Jake had to get the pin, get the submission or chug a bottle of tequila in five seconds.



I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

These stories about Andre's drinking are mind-boggling. Thanks a lot for posting that. I have a friend in one of the WWE Developmental territories who heard some stories of Andre's epic drinking first hand from Ric Flair. And Flair himself is no slouch; I'm told he will walk into a bar, order four tequila shots in a row, down them quickly, chase them with a beer, and start dancing: "WHOOOO! I'm ready!" And he means ready to really start drinking. But Andre's exploits dwarf Flair's, as he did everyone when he was alive. Gods among men, truly.

I still don't like how it seems to have become a common misconception that Andre retired after WMII. He WRESTLED at the next 3 and appeared at WM7 in the corner of the Boss Man before finally retiring.

Other than that, great great stories.

It's at least better than the Hogan version, where 1700 pound Andre died the next day.

I thought Hogan picked Andre up at WM III and threw him out of the arena and over the border into Canada didn't he?

That was WM 4, when Hulk put all of the human race, including Donald Trump, on his back, and swam everyone to safety.

It's really sad that it looks like *we* have more respect for the memory of Owen. I have no clue how this isn't one of the saddest things I've ever seen. I don't get it is he a media whore or not?
