Default Big Van Vader, Not the professional you would have hoped to meet

Source: Wrestling News Center

Saturday Night Sept 13th, The event, The Ashlynn MCclure Memorial 2. A night that should have been celebrated by a gathering of individuals to make a difference by raising money for St. Jude. One of the special stars brought in to make the event even more special, was Big Van Vader. A man with many years in the sport of professional wrestling. A man that made a name for himself in WCW, WWE and Japan. The fans thought they would be in for a treat, to meet such a "Name" in this business.

Well, that was not the case. I spoke to several fans that allege the exact opposite. It is alleged that Vader was rude and cursed people for no other reason than being cantankerous. One man claimed Vader even tried to slam his head in a door while telling the man he did not belong in the same area of the building he was in. Vader was not brought in as a "heel". He was brought in to entertain the audience and help raise money for St. Jude. This poor treatment did not stop with the fans. It was also alleged that Vader bullied some of the wrestlers as well, even pushing a female talent. I can personally say, I was not overly impressed by Vader's attitude. While standing at ring side, I could hear Vader, downing the audience under his breath and being a general jerk. He did his ring work, with enthusiasm, which was a surprise by his initial attitude. This in itself may have saved the opinion of Vader, but there is one thing that he did that was really in poor taste.

The event organizer, Jason "Tha Brain" had spoken to Vader about taking pictures in the ring with fans for a price of $10. The deal was made that Vader would donate all proceeds earned from these pictures to St. Jude. This was agreed on between Vader and Jason. Here is where things take a turn for the worse. Jason alleges that Vader did not give the money as a donation and said that as soon as Vader left the ring, he and his son, left the building without saying anything to anyone. This isn't a theft, but it may as well be, since the money earned for the pictures did not go to St. Jude as promised. Vader was paid, and paid well for his appearance. The alleged breaking of the deal was just poor taste by a man that has lost the respect of many that were in attendance and part of the event. Will this stop him from getting bookings, doubtful. But I would say, Vader is not the professional that I hoped he would be.

The time I met Vader he was nothing but nice.

But this sucks if true.

There are plenty of recent stories about Vader being a dick and no-showing shows. Maybe he's having issues with drugs or alcohol.

Hope it's not true. Vader, from what I've mainly heard, is a great guy. Maybe he's just going through some issues and was in a bad - really bad - mood that day.
