Vader passes away at 63 years old



Pro wrestling legend Big Van Vader passed away on Monday night at the age of 63. Vader’s son, pro wrestler Jake Carter, released the following message on social media to inform the public of his father’s passing.

Vader held major titles during his 30-year career including the IWGP Heavyweight Championship (3x) and WCW World Heavyweight Championship (3x). He also made major waves with his appearances on the television sitcom Boy Meets World.

Back in late 2016, Vader (birth name Leon White) told the world via social media that he only had two years left to live due to congestive heart failure.
