But Andre the Giant? Yeah, if you piss him off, odds are you were ending up in a proverbial bodybag, which is to say I don't think he legit killed anyone. However, would you go up to a man proportioned like Ol' Andre and fuck with him? If you were sane, you wouldn't. If you were Piper, however, well, that would have been a whole different story. As you can find out for yourself in the following video, Piper has a bit of trouble getting a straight answer out of Andre over Big John Studd's claim that he bodyslammed the giant Frenchman. It wasn't much of an interview, but it certainly did its job.
The line "You do not throw rocks at a man holding a machine gun" became one of Piper's most iconic lines, but the actual context of it makes it even more ingrained in his DNA as a performer. It's brilliant.
