I find it funny how they slapped on a WWE logo on.

Honestly, Gorilla Monsoon has a really stupid gimmick. His gimmick that he
was from Manchuria? Do people even know where Manchuria is at all?

Love Andre the giant may he rest in peace😇

Author John D ( ago)
The Giant was selling while Gorilla didn't. I love both and miss them
dearly, the better stage presents was the giant by far. Andre looked like
he was getting slugged.

Author HuckFinn ( ago)
Professional wrestling is much like religion; you know its bullshit, but
you stay to enjoy the nonsense anyway.

Author jbiafra08 ( ago)
How weird is it that when the camera angle changes, Gorilla Monsoon

Andre the Giant looks like a big giant bear trying to box. LOL

Author Jim Lowe ( ago)
Awesome, simply priceless! :)

Author HighConsciousness1 ( ago)
Andre was probably the biggest Icon in 70's Wrestling - he was apparently
7" 1 inches tall. I have to say this was very hard to watch - they should
have stuck to wrestling. It is all scripted as we all now know.

Author steve steve ( ago)
They should have named him fat Walmart shopper.

Gorilla Monsoon was a very tall man himself, especially during his prime,
he was easily 6'5", and looked about 6'4" towards the end of his life. He
was much taller than 6'1" Steve Austin and 6'3" Muhammad Ali.

Author john mullens ( ago)
I don't quite understand the debate on the size of the Giant.. 7'4" isn't
that uncommon among europeans. The build of the body is "long and thin"
which isn't Andre's build (wasn't) but one of MY old friends was 7'5"..
Gorilla was about the same height as Vader I noticed on one video. Vader
was a BIG man.. but look at how Andre towers over Gorilla in this video.
I'm not saying I defo know Andre the Giant WAS 7'4" but it is certainly
believable.. I myself am 6'3' and I know Hulk Hogan for example is a man I
would literally look up to.. yeah, I'd say HE is or was 6'8" in his prime..
BTW, Wonderful video! very enjoyable!

Author bill smith ( ago)
This vid is hilarious. As fake as it is and even with the debate over
Andre's weight and height, can you imagine what Andre could have done to
people if he actually lost his temper? I do not believe Andre had it in him
though. Lets face it, "professional wrestling" is a joke. Pure
entertainment. Scripted, formulated twaddle really. Don't get me wrong,
what they do is incredibly physical and very hard on the body. They suffer
many injuries. They get hurt. But if Andre REALLY wanted to hurt you you
would be fucked...But he never did. He truly was a gentle giant. I have
read many things about Mr Roussimoff, but never a bad one. By all accounts
a lovely man who brought joy to many, despite the pain and isolation that
his condition afflicted upon him. Rest in peace big fella :)

Lord Alfred Hayes commentary is classic. 

Author Max Davis ( ago)
two huge bulls workin gut and heads… big assed MEN takin & givin punishment…

bigger man…sorry to see the better man lose here...

Pure, unadulterated sports entertainment.

Monsoon knew how to draw Heat. 10000x better than anybody today.

Cena draws heat, but the wrong kind. 

Author lightningsmokerXx ( ago)
ridiculously Fake

Author Roger Wilson ( ago)
Lord Alfred certainly exaggerated the hell out of the tale of the tape,
Monsoon was 6'5 Alfred has him at of 7'0. I know it's all scripted and over
the top but that mam he's stretching it, literally. 

Author ovidiu doman ( ago)
Rest In Peace Andre Rene Roussiomf 19th May 1946-27th January 1993

WOW awesome, great video

Author TheGerryhmaster ( ago)
Wow Gorilla Monsoon must have put extra time in at the gym...what a
washboard stomach!

Author yidy1 ( ago)
Don't know if anyone here noticed this: At 5:28 Monsoon spits some liquid
into the face of Andre the Giant, and while the giant is disoriented the
Gorilla goes to town on him...

Author JesseH ( ago)
Now, THAT'S wrestling entertainment.

Super Macho-Man from the Mike Tyson games must of been modeled after Andre
the Giant. lol

Monsoon fue Hugo Savinovich en ese entonces era rudo y tenia de apodo el
Muñecaso era de un personaje amanerado 

Author Thaye ( ago)
That's easy enough. Thanks.

Author BengalBruin ( ago)
heel - bad guy face - good guy

Author MultiSamTaylor ( ago)
That KO should not have counted since referee Wolcott had gotten between
the two fighters--- Andre was not supposed to throw a punch during what was
essentially a break! Monsoon was cheated!

Author Thaye ( ago)
I've been enjoying lots of wrestling matches on Youtube lately and have to
admit they do put on a good show, but I haven't watched it since I was
small, I'm not a native english speaker, so I need a little help here:
What's "heel" and "face"? I'm not sure I understand those.

Author Mr. Bludclot ( ago)
and "article" or wikipedia? lol 

Author Max Davis ( ago)
Andre delivers awesome gut hook to that huge Gorilla gut at 2:50...drapes
that fat ass over the ropes at 3:00... Monsoon never recovers from those
chops after that... Andre owned him...

Author roger wilson ( ago)
Lord Alfred is lying his ass off calming Monsoon was 7'0. Dude was more
like 6'5. 

Author jpsholland ( ago)
I have read a article about Andre the Giant in Readers Digest about 1988,
1989 that his official medical records states that he was 2.25m or nearly
7.4ft at the heyday of his life. Andre suffered from a disease that kept
his body growing fast and endless. At the age of 12 his was equal in size
as the average 16 yo boy living in France at the time. At the end of his
life Andre his body start to collapse under his weight but still keep on
growing. This disease also toke his life.

Author kalai131 ( ago)
if there was any proof that andre the giant was a legit 7 foot 4 inches
tall, this clip is it, he has no lifts in his shoes and gorilla monsoon who
is 6'6 only comes to andre's chest

Monsoon or Andre. Could you imagine getting hit by these guys. There power

tallest, he was 7' 2"
