1) Andre Drinking Heavily Before Matches
Gerald Brisco has been around WWE since the 1980’s. As you can imagine, he has some incredible stories from things that went on backstage. He was interviewed by the Tampa Bay Times, where he told a great Andre the Giant drinking story about the legend.
He tells the tale of Andre usually drinking heavily prior to his matches:
“There are a lot of crazy stories about Andre that sound fake but most are true, especially his drinking. Andre used to ask me to get him six bottles of Mateus wine and ice them down. He would drink those before we went to the ring and no one could tell” (Source: Tampa Bay Times).
He also tells the story of Andre consuming two cases of tall boys (beers) in one car trip.
“One night in Sarasota, Andre is traveling with us. So we pull over and get two cases of tall boys. By the time we get from Sarasota to the Tahitian Inn on Dale Mabry, the two cases were bone dry.He was one of the nicest guys but I have seen idiots in bars all over the country challenge him, and with one little shove they’d be 10 feet away” (Source: Tampa Bay Times).
We are just setting the tone for Andre’s drinking prowess.
