The Andre The Giant HBO special which made its debut last year will be arriving on the WWE Network tomorrow, May 12. The documentary will be available on demand as well.
The highly-acclaimed documentary, produced by HBO Sports, WWE, and the Bill Simmons Media Group, chronicles the myth that was Andre The Giant, his rise in professional wrestling, being the leader in the locker room, and the pain he suffered throughout the years until his eventual death. Vince McMahon, Hulk Hogan, Jim Ross, Ric Flair, Mean Gene Okerlund, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, actress Robin Wright, and many other appear in sit-down interviews during the course of the documentary.
When it originally aired in April of last year, the 90-minute broadcast attracted nearly 1 million viewers on HBO. It’s a fantastic look at the man known as the 8th Wonder of the World and highly recommended to those who are not overly familiar with the story behind the giant.
