Posted By James Walsh on 10/05/18


In an interview with Pastor Ed Young for his series on wrestling (via The Sun), The Undertaker revealed that Andre the Giant hinted at a secret plan involving ‘Taker but never said what it was before he died.

He said: “I never got the chance to wrestle Andre. By the time that I got there, his health was really in decline. He wrestled a few times and it was funny because Andre was really old school. Andre didn’t like big guys either — he loved me, thank goodness. But for most big guys he thought they were arrogant or bullies or whatnot, but he had his way with a lot of guys that you would be like, ‘Oh that’s a pretty tough guy,’ [but] Andre would set him straight. Anyway, he liked me and, you know, I guess we always think we got one [match] left in us you know. He’d come in, he’s Andre The Giant. Biggest star that’s ever [been] at that time in wrestling. Worldwide phenomenon, he was always the first guy in the locker room. He was always there, he would love to sit there and play Cribbage and I’d come in and say, ‘Hey boss, how you doing today?’ [He’d say], ‘Good. You know one day kid, me and you. I have this idea.’ ‘Oh really boss? Tell me about it.’ And he’d never tell me.“
