Ric Flair has spilled the beans on the full extent of Andre the Giant's drinking habits.

Speaking on the Dan Le Batard Show on ESPN, Flair didn't hold back, dishing out some insane stories about the fellow wrestling legend.

"I was with him one night at the Downtowner in Charlotte," Flair smiled.

"In 1975, he drank 106 beers. And Frank Valois, his manager at that time, drank 56."

It was a statement form Flair that left Le Batard in shock.

But that wasn't it.

"Hey, I've been on a plane, on a 747 with him going to Tokyo out of Chicago, on No. 4 on Northwest," Flair revealed.

"We drank every bottle of vodka on the plane.

"540 pounds, brother."

Andre the Giant has long been regarded for his ability to drink as much as his ability to wrestle, with plenty of stories and murmurs emerging about his habits outside the ring.

And this one's a genuine classic.
