WWE Legend Vader announced his retirement from professional wrestling over the weekend on Twitter.
With Great Sorrow I leave my first born my greatest love of All for a chance to exist inthe same plain of existance of my Gr Ch yet to exist
— Big Van Vader (@itsvadertime) June 4, 2017
Vader’s last match was in a six-man tag with Keiji Muto & AKIRA against Fujinami, Riki Choshu & Shiro Koshinaka at Korakuen Hall in Japan back in April. Vader passed out after due to an apparent head injury he suffered during the bout.
As previously noted, Vader indicated last November he only had two years to live due to suffering from congestive heart failure. He has been lobbying for a WWE Hall of Fame induction before he passes.
