JNPO: 'Andre The Giant' director/producer Jason Hehir


On a special edition of Josh Nason's Punch-Out, sports & music documentary filmmaker Jason Hehir dropped by the show to talk about his trip into the world of pro wrestling with the upcoming HBO documentary 'Andre The Giant'. 

Even if you aren't immediately familiar with his name, you know his work from ESPN (The Fab Five, The '85 Bears), HBO (De La Hoya-Mayweather 24/7, Mayweather-Hatton 24/7), and for his run on the outstanding UFC Primetime series.

On the docket: 

- We discussed Jason's past working on Primetime, what standout fighters he remembers from that run, and his perspective on the sport given that he wasn't a fan of it.

- We talked about the Andre documentary and how things came together, his biggest challenges in making it, the cooperation level of WWE, his thoughts on Hulk Hogan after interviewing him, and the recent Ric Flair 30 for 30.

- We discussed the comparisions between Dana White and Vince McMahon as he's spent time with both of them.

- We wrap up with a discussion on Michael Buble. Yep, that happened.
