Standing at seven-foot-four and weighing over 500 lbs, it goes without saying that Andre the Giant was not someone to pick a fight with. However, according to former WWE Superstar Jacques Rougeau, there was once a time when four men provoked the WWE icon at a bar.
Andre the Giant’s drinking stories have become legendary over the years. The Frenchman allegedly drank over 100 beers in just 45 minutes one time, while he was also known to be a heavy wine drinker.
“There was four guys in a bar that went to, I don’t know, maybe they had too much to drink and decided to try him [Andre the Giant] out or call him out," Rougeau said. "But the guy slapped Andre, slapped him to provoke him. And when Andre got up at the bar, the guy just looked and he couldn’t believe what had happened.”
Rougeau added that the man ran out of the bar and got into a car, which Andre the Giant promptly flipped over.
“The guy jumped in the Volkswagen and Andre just took the car and he flipped it on the top. I swear to God. As God may strike me, that’s a true story. It comes from different people everywhere in Quebec.”
