People I talk to swear I am making this up but I remember seeing on TV, Andre wrestle several midgets at once. Anyone else recall such? Dinner is riding on this with one of my cohorts from work. Please help, because I can fnd no proof from old mags, or researh on the net.

If Andre Lost the Match then it was definately Rey Mysterio Jr. and Juventud and it was a real shoot in WCW.

I asked a couple knowledgable fellow East Coasters, and we all sort of recall seeing it as well, but have no details to back up the fuzzy UHF memories. It would have made Andre somewhat heelish, so I'm thinking that it did not occur. Maybe we are confusing it with the couple of matches Andre would take vs. a mid level heel tag team, with a midget as a partner (as did The Crusher).
sorry,
RAF

Like the Rev, I have a kinda fuzzy memory of seeing something with Andre & midgets...just not sure what it was...maybe one of those tug-o-war spots he used to do?

OK brothers. You guys think that somewhere in your minds, you remember huge Andre wrestling a bunch of midgets at once. Now I gotta ask... where can I get your groovy smoke at?

Guys,

This most definitely happened. I posted a reply where I mentioned this on the old board, and this match (possibly a battle royal?) happened in my area (Providence RI) around 81-83. It was advertised on TV and paper. I remember kids at school talking about this. I wasn't a diehard fan yet and I thought this was funny. I do not know about the results, but I am positive it has happened. I wish I have a clipping from that era to support my claim.
