Former professional wrestling star Leon White, known more commonly to fans as Vader or Big Van Vader passed away earlier this week.
The news about the former WCW champion’s passing came from his son Jesse via the performer’s Twitter account.
Jesse later went on to say that his father has been dealing with health issues for the last month or so.
He won championships in several promotions including All Japan Pro Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and the Universal Wrestling Federation, among other organizations.
White was 63 years of age. He will land in the squared circle in the sky where he will meet WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Sammartino who passed away earlier this year.
We here at MyMMANews.com want to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Leon White.
