Bill Apter recently uploaded a new interview with Robin Christensen-Roussimoff, the daughter of Andre The Giant, when the two caught up at Bud Carson’s Wrestling Convention in Allentown in November.
Robin Christensen-Roussimoff had to share her father Andre the Giant with the rest of the world — and she has no regrets other than she wished she had more time to have spent with him. Here she chats with Bill Apter and reminisces about Andre — the “Eighth Wonder of the World!”
Christensen-Roussimoff is also set to appear at ’80s Wrestling Con III this April in Freehold, New Jersey. She will be part of a lineup that also includes Honky Tonk Man, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express, Lex Luger and many more of your favorite ’80s wrestling stars.
