Andre the Giant flying out of Japan in the 1980's


  1. I'd like to see United try and throw Andre off the airplane.

  2. I got the seat next to him late one night outta Vegas. Late 80s early 90s. He had his two seats, I had my one seat, I was still squished. Nice guy, Large presence. I remember thinking that the pilot probably had to put two units of trim in to compensate for him sitting on one side. We talked and I asked him why he became a Pro Wrestler. He held out his hand palm out and asked me to put mine against it. I'm not a small guy yet my hand and fingers would fit inside the palm of his. Point taken, Giant Man.
