Andre Drank A Lot Because He Was In Constant Pain
He drank a lot, spent a lot on bar tabs and took a lot of pictures in bars. André reportedly didn’t like pills but was in a great deal of pain most of the time. He chose to ease his discomfort with alcohol.
“Obviously for a man his size, he could drink a lot,” said wrestler Ted DiBiase, “The Million Dollar Man.”
“He hated pills, medicine, and painkillers and stuff, because he saw what it was doing to other guys. So the way André killed his pain and medicated himself was with booze.”
