John Pollock chats with Pat Laprade about his new book with co-author Bertrand Hebert The Eighth Wonder of the World: The True Story of Andre the Giant.
Pat stops by to discuss the life and career of Andre the Giant, the exhaustive task of separating fact from fiction in his life, the experience working on the HBO documentary, Andre’s pre-WWF years, Grand Prix vs. All-Star Wrestling, how he dealt with acromegaly, his back surgery and its proximity to WrestleMania 3 & where Andre’s career would have gone if he had lived longer.
Plus, they discuss The Assassination of Dino Bravo from Dark Side of the Ring, which Pat worked on and was interviewed for.
Pat Laprade is the co-author of The Eighth Wonder of the World: The True Story of Andre the Giant and is available everywhere through ECW Press.
