Hacksaw Jim Duggan Reveals Why He Didn’t Attend Andre The Giant’s Funeral



On a recent edition of his “The Hacksaw Hour” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan recalled some memories of his late friend and WWE Hall of Famer Andre The Giant.

Andre passed away at the age of 46 due to congestive heart failure and an apparent heart attack in his sleep, likely associated with his untreated acromegaly, at a Paris hotel on the morning of Thursday, January 28, 1993.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On Andre the Giant passing away at 46: “Not really surprised, no. As my doctor told me, you don’t see a lot of old, heavy guys. That’s why I dropped a bunch of weight. Guys that big that partied that hard…but he was relatively very young. The man was in his 40s, wasn’t he? That was a lot of man to be carrying around on his heart. You know that heart had to be pumping hard. It didn’t surprise me.”

On not attending Andre the Giant’s funeral: “I haven’t been to any of the boys’ funerals. It’s like a photo shoot for a lot of guys. ‘Hey, make sure we get to the funeral to take some pictures and stuff.’ Even my friends, Doc and Gordy, I didn’t go.”
