WWE legend, Vader passed away Tuesday night from heart complications.
His son announced the passing of his father via Twitter. Vader, whose real name was Leon White, was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in 2016. According to TMZ, he was given only two years to live.
Vader, who also went by Big Van Vader in the ring, revealed in April he was recovering well from open-heart surgery he had in March. Although the strongman said at the time that he was in good health, his surgery scar was nothing short of gnarly.
White’s fellow wrestler sent their condolences via Twitter:
