WWE Star Jerry Lawler

Andre the Giant Was a Legend

... At The Bar

3/23/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

032114_jerry_lawler_launch_v2The only undefeated pro wrestling champ ... when it comes to drinking ... is Andre the Giant -- so says another WWE legend -- Jerry "The King" Lawler.

Before he was announcing, Lawler used to wrestle and hang with the French giant -- and tells us A.T.G. could drink more than anyone he knows ... or YOU know, for that matter.

As Jerry walked out of LAX ... he also revealed the exact amount of beer it took to get 7'4", 500 lb. Andre drunk, and let's just say ... George Lopez would be proud.

Definitely ... Eighth Wonder of the World.

Jerry Lol'er, and I say that with total respect. His stunts with Andy Kaufman were brilliant.

It also helped kill him too. He had a lot of health issues and doctors kept telling him to stop the drinking because it was making it worse, but he didn't care.

Dear Jerry, if you are going to talk about a legend, make sure you get your facts straight. Andre wasn't a beer drinker, ANDRE loved his wine and could go through twelve bottles in one sitting without even getting a buzz on.

With All of that vital information that was given about absolutely nothing (because thats all wrestling is), and all of those ridiculously entertaining questions all of the light seems to just shine down on how many beers Andre the giant could drink.....so now is when tmz starts hoping Justin beiber does something stupid again..

Have to say it's good PR there's that E! Show "Total Divas" because though the show has reality show antics, it shows they're not crazy drinks or drug addicts or are always getting arrested.
