Re: Vader says he has 2 years to live

Damn. Vader is one of the best big men in wrestling history, & to hear this news is just saddening.

Hopefully the big man gets to live his years out to the fullest.

I hope he can get through this. Vader is one of the GOAT. I will always remember Vader time. I loved his feud with Sid btw.

Hopefully WWE gives him a place in the HOF next year he really deserves to do his speech instead of a family member on his behalf when he's gone.

Re: Vader says he has 2 years to live

One of the great big men in the business - very sad news.

Here for Hulk Hogan - the biggest star in the history of sports entertainment, and one of the greatest pop culture icons of all-time.

30 years later, and still the man - BROTHER!

David Rockefeller is 101 yrs old on his 7th heart transplant. If you have money there's a way.

Re: Vader says he has 2 years to live

Terrible news to wake up to. I'm assuming a heart transplant is not an option for whatever reason. If it's money then he should totally start a kickstarter. Anyway this sucks. I can't imagine what it's like to know your expiration date. Here's hopping and praying he can beat it. And if not he can make these next 2 years his best.

Re: Vader says he has 2 years to live

I'd like to think he isn't just tweeting this for some sort of sympathy or to make himself somewhat relevant in 2016 or to get a Hall of Fame spot (which he deserves anyway).

Saddening obviously if is true. I was a huge Vader fan as a kid and he deserves happiness for the happiness he brought to many fans of professional wrestling.

Re: Vader says he has 2 years to live

Damn... that's knocked me for 6 a little. I loved Vader as a kid/teenager, from his dominance in the ring, seeing a man that size do a moonsault, hell even his cameos on Boy Meets World were frickin awesome. I hope he finds a way to make it through...

Re: Vader says he has 2 years to live

Terribly sad news. Vader was so unique to the business for being a legit MOUNTAIN of a man, but having the speed, agility and aerial ability of someone half his size. Very underrated talent.

Wishing him nothing but the best. I'd like to think that with continuing advancements in cardiovascular medicine, there might be a way of extending his life or diminishing his disease, but I suppose one should be realistic at the same time. I hope he enjoys his life to the fullest.

Certified HOF material.
