Hulk Hogan – ‘Andre The Giant Scared Me To Death’



Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant had one of the most iconic matches in the history of professional wrestling, but The Hulkster wasn’t really close to the late WWE Hall of Famer in the beginning.

Appearing on the “This Past Weekend” podcast, Hogan revealed that he was actually scared of Andre due to the giant’s animosity toward him.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On not laying out matches with other stars: “I could wrestle anybody. I never talked about a match, except one time with The Rock and we didn’t do anything we talked about.”

On working with Andre: “[Andre] scared me to death… The hardest thing for me was — the first 8 or 9 years — he didn’t like me at all and tortured me. When we got in the ring, he showed me how much he didn’t like me.”

On Andre punishing him for breaking kayfabe: “I made the mistake of bringing a flight attendant to the Capitol Center in Washington. and I put her first row and I didn’t tell Andre… He heard her say ‘Come on, Terry!’ and he figured out she was with me. And he about killed me. Took me back in the ring … he tied the bottom and the second rope and put my neck in it, took his size 27 boot … almost broke my neck in the ropes. Then I had those yellow tights. He picked me up like a damn stork, with my b*lls and my ass hanging out and carried me around in front of this girl with my junk hanging out.”
