Welcome to Awesome Truth, a wrestling book club in podcast form. Every episode, your hosts Steve Cimino and Walt Schwenk will dissect a documentary or a piece of wrestling literature. From autobiographies to exposés, WWF to WCW to WWE, it's an in-depth look at pro wrestling's best stories.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled podcasting to present a special bonus episode on HBO's Andre the Giant documentary. Produced by Bill Simmons and WWE, it's a detailed look at the life of André Roussimoff, one of the biggest (pun intended) wrestlers of all time. Featuring Vince McMahon, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and a bevy of other bombastic personalities, it's a huge mainstream moment for pro wrestling. But is it any good? Or does being so closely tied to WWE limit how far it can probe into the business's seamy underbelly?
