Did you know that

One famous story in wrestling history involves the legendary wrestler, Andre the Giant. Andre was known for his size, standing at 7 feet 4 inches tall and weighing over 500 pounds. Despite his large stature, Andre had a great sense of humor and loved to play practical jokes on his fellow wrestlers.

One day, Andre was traveling with some of his fellow wrestlers and decided to have some fun with them. The group stopped at a restaurant for a meal, and Andre decided to play a joke on his friends by ordering everything on the menu. The waitstaff brought out plate after plate of food, and Andre sat there calmly eating and enjoying the stunned reactions of his fellow wrestlers.

After what seemed like hours, Andre finally finished his meal and, much to the surprise of his friends, he had eaten everything that was brought to the table. They were all left in disbelief as Andre simply patted his stomach and said, “I’m still hungry.”
