The world had never seen anything like WWF attraction Andre the Giant. Today, readers can see the trailer for Bill Simmons’ and WWE’s HBO documentary, “Andre the Giant.”
Though Andre is the main attraction — pretty much like anywhere the legendary professional wrestler ever went — he’s not the only squared-circle legend in this thing. The doc features new interviews with Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Jerry “The King” Lawler, “Mean” Gene Oakerland and Vince McMahon, among others.
Oh, and some guy named Billy Crystal is in here too.
The upcoming documentary is produced by HBO Sports, WWE, and the Bill Simmons Media Group.
Watch the trailer above.
“Andre the Giant” premieres April 10 on HBO.
