Re: Andre the Giant vs. Worf

I have nothing against Klingons but, sorry to say, Andre the Giant's girth would crush Worf.

Andre always had severe health and back problems, like most acromegaly patients. His strength was mostly show.
Thank you. So few people realize how hard a life that guy must have lived.

Unlike Michael Dorn's fighting prowess?
The question is Andre vs. Worf, not Andre vs. Michael Dorn.

This. While acromegaly patients(a pituitary disorder and that can lead to not just great height be thick bones and great streng) may have almost superhuman strength, they have many, many health issues, as well.

There are stories that when a young man, Andre would move his friends' cars around as a practical joke, and he threw wrestlers like Black jack Mulligan (6'6" 350 lb) around like rag dolls, but he far from agile and had many health issues

The question was actually Andre the Giant vs Worf, not André Roussimoff. I'd argue that Andre the Giant was as much a fictional character as Worf was. But just to be clear, this is all still very wink-worthy, I'm not really arguing with you or anything. Just lobbing the ball back and forth.

Just this. Andre the Giant (unlike André René Roussimoff) did not have back problems and other health issues, he was a massively powerful, near super being. He would have thrown Worf around like a rag doll.

And if Worf were foolish enough to pick up a bat'leth, Andre would have beat Worf senseless with the ultimate weapon.

A folding metal chair.

Re: Andre the Giant vs. Worf

Can we make it a tag team of Worf and Martok vs Andre and Hulk Hogan?

How about The Rock instead? His ego alone would defeat a squad of Klingons.

Plus, he's been on the show before.
