Gene Okerlund says he appreciated Andre the Giant's personality.
The Andre The Giant documentary recently premiered on HBO and in conjunction with that release TMZ Sports interviewed Gene Okerlund about his first hand experience with Andre. Okerlund said one of his favorite thing about Andre was his honest personality.
"The guy was as honest as you could find. He had a very honest personality. If he liked you, you were in good graces and you lived a good life. If he didn't like you, you didn't stand a chance. If I could say the one thing I appreciated about Andre was his honesty, both personally and professionally," said Okerlund.
Later in the interview, Okerlund talked about Andre's love for fine French cuisine which included eating the "body organs" like livers and kidneys. Okerlund also discussed Andre's well documented ability to consume alcoholic beverages.
The documentary is a biographical piece which has been said to follow Andre during parts of his life which were not in the public eye at the time.
The full interview with Okerlund can be heard at the TMZ Sports YouTube or the video above.
