Andre was in pretty bad health at the time which is why the matches ended so quickly. But the duration of the matches varied as to how Andre was feeling on any given night. Some lasted 10 seconds, some lasted 10 minutes.

As I said most of the Warrior/Andre matches were house shows so unless you're pretty friendly with Vince McMahon there's no hope of seeing them on tape.
There is a Warrior/Andre match on one the first Ultimate Warrior video released by WWF but it lasts about 10 minutes or so. I don't know how all the matches ended or what series of moves he used. I would assume a couple of clotheslines to bring the giant down and a splash to finish him off in the 10 second wins, but I do know that he also bodyslammed Andre, as he did on the video, a couple of times during their feud.

Most of these matches took place in late '89 when Warrior was feuding with pretty much all of the Heenan Family.

I agree it was very good of Andre to put Warrior over in such a manner. However, it didn't go down well with some fans at the time. Warrior vs Andre was the main event of most of the shows at the time. So you can imagine the anti climax people felt when after sitting through a two hour show everything was said and done in the main event in 10 seconds.
