Pat Laprade, author of the new book, “The Eighth Wonder Of The World: The True Story of Andre The Giant,” shares some of the childhood stories he discovered about the wrestling legend. Pat and Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer also talk about acromegaly, the disease that caused Andre’s gigantism and why he never got it treated, Andre’s relationships with both Vince McMahon Senior and Junior, his historic feud with Hulk Hogan and how that provided the foundation for the WWF pay-per-view business model, his dislike of Macho Man Randy Savage, and some of their favorite Andre matches. Plus, they finally set the record straight on exactly how many beers Andre could drink in one sitting!
