He has said as much. I heard an interview, where he said, he knew Andre was in trouble, and they were just not able to do enough. With the exception of Bruno, no one printed tickets like Andre. I know you have been to Mania and you have probably have seen the life size cut out of Andre, he was incredibly big. Just getting comfortable in life had to be almost impossible even before his health problems did him in.
I have seen Show in person and he is also huge, but not as big as Andre.
Has he? When I saw the Andre doc on HBO you could see it, probably the only time I ever really believed every word coming out of Vince's mouth. He's a salesguy and promoter, it's his job to embellish, but man, talking about Andre was all real, totally different side of Vinny.
Yeah it's just mind numbing how huge he was. I met Show once, and he was pretty huge too, but yeah different league. One of the absolute nicest guys you'll ever meet though. I've just always wondered about it. I know he came over to WWE relatively young still, but seemed like once a year he was getting a month or two break, and I always wondered if he was fighting injuries cause he's bigger, or Vince was holding him back because he didn't want the injuries to get too bad. Really made me think about it after the Doc, you could see how much he loved Andre.
