There's been a few docs on Andre; him holding the beer can really puts his size into perspective. The fans today who never saw Andre have no idea what they're missing.
For people looking foreword to this... you MUST watch Shiek on Netflix. Absolutely great documentary on the rise, fall and rise again of The Iron Shiek.
Oh, I hadn't heard about this one. I'll definitely have to give this a go.
Looks like it will be well done
Crap, I forgot--I don't get HBO anymore
You referring to this one? Yeah, it's really good.
I'll check this out. I can't imagine a bigger WWF fan than me in the mid 80s. Had the dolls, my family hated that I watched every match, I was a hulkamaniac, etc.
Hmmm. this might be harder than I thought, assuming this isn't the 1921 version available on netflix...
but did you have subscriptions to Pro Wrestling Illustrated, World Wide Wrestling and go to every match that came to Veterans?
I hated the Hulkster though. His matches were so goddamn boring/predictable. I was happy when he screwed in the all-time ludicrous Friday Night's Main Event when Andre finally beat him, with the help of the evil twin referee and then saw the good twin ref come out... and then saw the two twins go at it with each other and ended with Hogan beating one of them up.
My favorites were Randy Savage, the British Bulldogs... and Steve Lombardi, the bad guy who NEVER won in the warm-up matches. He was like the Washington Generals of the WWF.
And easily the best rivalries ever were: Macho Man v. Ricky Steamboat, The Hart Foundation v. The Bulldogs and Superfly Snuka v. Rowdy. Each one of those were classic ridiculous dramas which ended up in the best single-matches ever.
