The storyline seems pretty weak to me; certainly I wouldn't trade his printed ability for it.

Yeah it does seem weak for Andre....maybe make it kinda like a Brahma bull effect where his opponent's moves of xF do no more then 1d or 2d so it kinda nails a wide variety of moves instead of just Cores since alot of people have ways of manipulating the F of moves they play.

In terms of ability wise, he is not as good as LAISE. In terms of storyline, it is not as good as brahma bull. In terms of reversal wise, HBK have a 2F 5D antic reversal. Orton have a 3F 6D antic reversal. I don't see this Andre very good.
RKO hit-list:
Edmund Heng; Rinson Yak; Frankie Ho; Liu Zuo Ren; Cheong Zhen Xiong; Muhd Sahil; Kenneth Goh; Alvin Lee; Heinz ; Andrew Oh; Lau Khee Yuan; Aaron Chua; Ruben Sabejon; Ang You Ren; Timothy Tang

I think you could adapt one other thing from the Classic Andre and allow an expanded arsenal for <R> Andre.  Considering nobody else has it, I'd say 80-90 as an arsenal would be fine.  He needs Trademarks, too--the Giant Headbutt, the corner backside assault, and other things like that.

Lemme try one card here.

Your next maneuver is +2D for every Superstar Specific in your Ring area.
