Its a sad day in the wrestling world as one of the greatest big men to ever step foot in the ring, Vader, has passed away at the age of 62. Vader passed away at the age of 62 Monday night around 7:25 and his passing is believed to be caused by his heart giving out after a lengthy battle with Pneumonia
While Vader is touted as an inspiration to big men in WWE and a larger then life character, he has still not been inducted into The WWE Hall of Fame as of yet, which is something The WWE Universe is probably going to want the company to rectify relatively soon. In fact, WWE might end up inducting him into the 2019 hall of fame like they have done with several others after their passing.
“It is with a heavy heart to inform everyone that my father, Leon White, passed away on Monday night (6/18/18) at approximately 7:25pm,” said a tweet released by the family on Wednesday.
The family went on to say that,”Around a month ago my father was diagnosed with a severe case of Pneumonia. He fought extremely hard and clinically was making progress. Unfortunately, on Monday night his heart had enough and it was his time.”
