Former WWE Wrestler Claims Hulk Hogan Feared André The Giant

Hulk Hogan was allegedly scared of André the Giant.

According to former WWE Superstar Mario Mancini, Hulk Hogan in the past had huge worries revolving around his safety with André the Giant also being in World Wrestling Entertainment’s locker room.

At WrestleMania 3 in 1987, Hulk Hogan notoriously scored a victory over the legend and his rival in the main event, as well as famously body slamming the 7’4″, 520 pound giant. Here in 2022, it’s common knowledge that backstage, André the Giant would drink alcohol, and a lot of it, while playing cards with Arnold Skaaland, a former agent in WWE.

Making an appearance on the “Cheap Heat Productions” podcast for an interview, Mancini made the claim that Hogan had thorough concern over his well-being, and even feared for his life, after André’s drinking got a bit wild on one occasion.

“Before he [Hogan] entered the actual dressing room, he was screaming down the hallway, ‘He’s gonna kill me, that son of a b***h, he’s gonna kill me! He’s gonna kill me!’ Vince [former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon] went running up to him, ‘Shut up, shut up.’ ‘He’s drunk in there, he’s drunk. He’s gonna kill me! He’s gonna kill me!’ Hogan was very concerned that Andre was really gonna kill him.”
