Box Brown has been a pro wrestling fan since his first PPV experience: Hulk Hogan lost at Wrestlemania VI, and the friend he was watching with cried. He was hooked by the characters and the facade of it all, so it's no wonder that he became attracted to two huge cults of personality in André and Andy. André left a bevy of stories in his wake, one of which inspired Box to draw the first comic of what eventually became his NYT-bestselling graphic novel, André the Giant: Life and Legend. Young Box was also hooked by the way Andy borrowed the idea of wrestlers strictly staying in character and carried it into his comedy. Andy's antics as a classic heel culminating with being slapped by Jerry Lawler on Letterman secured him a place in the history of wrestling's secrets and Box's interest.
