Vader has passed away

Post by ICW » June 20th, 2018, 11:05 am

"It is with a heavy heart to inform everyone that my father, Leon White, passed away on Monday night (6/18/18) at approximately 7:25pm. Around a month ago my father was diagnosed with a severe case of Pneumonia. He fought extremely hard and clinically was making progress. Unfortunately, on Monday night his heart had enough and it was his time."

I guess unlike Billy Graham, when he said his time was not long, he actually meant it.

Definitely an all time great big man, perhaps top 2 all time, along with Taker. Frankly I can't really pick anyone above Taker and Vader off the top of my head.

The only big man I would even put in the conversation with Taker and Vader would be Bigelow, and he never had the longevity as a major company main eventer that Vader did. When you take into account look, believability, titles, athleticism, etc., Vader's right up near the top of the list.

RIP

Thanks for posting man, but I merged it with the thread in the PW section.

Sad to hear he passed. It's a shame he couldn't get a HOF induction before he passed.
