Vader Says He Has Less Than Two Years to Live

Big Van Vader (real name Leon White) announced on Twitter earlier today that he has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, and has less than two years to live.

“Told by 2 heart Drs that my heart is wore out,” White wrote on Twitter. “I have been given less than two years to live. I am only now allowing this as part of my reality.”

Drew’s Take:  This is obviously terrible news, and hopefully there’s something medically that can be done to help him live a longer life.  Vader was one of the best big men in pro-wrestling’s history.  Our thoughts go out to Vader and his family during these difficult days ahead.
