It is a sad day for the pro wrestling world because The Man They Call Vader has passed away at the age of 63-year-old.

Vader’s family made the announcement via his Twitter profile today. He was an inspiration to all big men and inspired generations after him. Sadly, he never saw his induction into the WWE Hall Of Fame before he passed.

He passed away around 7:25 pm on Monday Night. About a month ago Vader was diagnosed with a severe case of pneumonia and he fought hard but he ended up losing the battle when his heart had enough.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Vader’s friends, fans, and family in this great time of loss. RIP Vader.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
