I read that Andre was a cultured gentle man,and im guessing if he didn't want to lose a match he wouldn't have.Really he could have folded hulk hogan up like a paper cup and crushed him.Its just that the powers that be in wrestling prefered Andre as a villian.
He couldn't beat the Hulkster, Ultimate Warrior was giving him fits, so he takes it out on a cameraman.
I'd like to see the look on the face of the sheriff as he approached him with handcuffs.....are police even trained to apprehend yetis?
