Hillbilly Jim recently sat down with The Hannibal TV to discuss a handful of topics, including a moment where the Ultimate Warriors became a bit too stiff – being too rough with an opponent in the ring – with wrestling legend Andre the Giant.
“A lot of guys were mad about the stiffness, he tried that with Andre one time,” he said with a laugh. “He ran across one time…and when he run up on Andre, Andre just shot that big giant hand out there, and it stopped everything, caught him up under the neck, it was like he grabbed a squeak toy, and it was funny because Andre had to put him over, but he’d stop him real quick and it was hilarious.”
Hillbilly Jim went on to discuss Andre, and saying that while some criticized his inability to work, that it was all entertaining, which is all that matters at the end of the day.
