Big Van Vader given two years to live
« on: November 16, 2016, 08:56:25 AM »
due to heart failure by two doctors according to his Twitter.


Growing up as a huge WWF fan, Vader was one of the main reasons that drew me to WCW in the early 90's.


I was really excited for his WWF run, but Vince didn't know how to use him and Shawn refused to put him over.


A prime Vader vs Brock is a dream match of mine to this day.

Hopefully he can figure something out and they can keep him around for a while. I was legit upset when I read that highlight.

Dang :( :( :( I'm a huge Vader fan. Every time I watch an old match it tops the last one. He was the BEST big man.

Well Shawn admits he was a shithead human being in those days.


He lost more smiles than he did matches, which is funny when he met someone as bad as him in Hogan who refused to job to him, so Shawn ruined the match by overselling.

Shawn didn't ruin that match, he made it great lol!

Vader is still working guys, and people are letting him. He collapsed in a match the other day. It was ugly. I hope he's not strapped for money. He shouldn't be because I thought I read that he didn't blow all his money and had interest in some businesses.

I guess he said on a podcast last month that he'd prefer to check out while he's in a match. Looks like there are Japanese promotions willing to give him the opportunity.

Supposedly, his collapse the other day was from a concussion, not his heart problems. But judging from his tweets, I don't know if I would trust him on that.
