More Saddening News on Vader


Vader had a match at Korakuen Hall as part of the show celebrating the 45th anniversary of the debut of Tatsumi Fujinami. The belief was that he had fainted from being dehydrated and he was able to walk out under his own power, although he is telling people that it was from a concussion after being dropped on his head.

However, on this week’s Wrestling Observer newsletter. Vader was open about his congestive heart failure diagnosis and told people that he wanted to be able to live out the rest of his life on his terms. That is why he accepted the offer to wrestle this past weekend.

The feeling is that even before he passed out, that this would probably be his last time in Japan, period. Vader has gone on record saying that he does not have much time to live, and would love to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.  When Vader first arrived on the wrestling scene, there was no one at his size that moved around like he did back then.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
