BIG VAN VADER, RIP


He was billed at 6-foot-4, 456 pounds, but he could move.

He was a legend in Japan.

His title vs. career match at Starrcade ’93 was a career rebirth for Ric Flair.

His eye once popped out of its socket during a match; he pushed it back in and continued.

He was world champion three times for New Japan Pro Wrestling, twice for World Championship Wrestling. He was All Japan Pro Wrestling’s Triple Crown champ three times.

Leon White, b/k/a as Big Van Vader, passed away today at the age of 63. He was one of pro wrestling’s very best super heavyweights ever. #RIPVader
