Teaser Trailer: ANDRÉ The Giant – ManlyMovie

Teaser Trailer: ANDRÉ The Giant

HBO has prepared an upcoming documentary on André the Giant, for which the trailer is above.

“For more than 20 years, Andre the Giant’s larger than life personality and unique charisma captured the imagination of fans around the world,” WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon said in a statement. “I will always value our friendship, and am proud to tell the story of the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’.”

The documentary could be good for two reasons, firstly it has been apparently outsourced to HBO completely, as opposed to being an in-house WWE production.  Because of course, anything WWE touches these days turns to shit.  General rule of thumb: the WWF died along with ECW and WCW.

Second it’s from a time when wrestling was actually worth watching.  Oh and here is a second trailer for a Roddy Piper documentary, another big name from the same era.
