Unfortunately, death as come so close again — another wrestling legend is already counting days to his death. Yes, he has gotten the information from the doctor; put your house together, you won’t have too much time left again.
Former WCW Champion Big Van Vader posted the following on Twitter tonight, revealing doctors have informed him he has two years left to live.
Vader, real name Leon White, says he has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure as a result of both his football and pro wrestling careers.
Former WCW Heavyweight, Champion Leon “Vader” White, was involved in a horrifying car collision recently and the effect of the accident in him seems very terrifying that he was told to start getting prepared for his death that he has just two years left to pass away.
Vader has always been an active sportsperson with a long and successful career in both football and pro-wrestling that spans over 20 years. According to the doctors, the two sports have taken a heavy toll on his heart, and they believe there is not much time left.
The 61-year-old was involved in the fatal car accident on Tuesday, while driving through Boulder, Colorado. The car rolled over multiple times, and as a result, Vader was left unconscious in the car for about 35 minutes, before help would arrive.
Vader has had a long history with health-related issues, after suffering numerous injuries during his time in the ring. He was bedridden for about six months after his surgical wounds got infected following a double-knee replacement surgery. Even after recovery, the problems continued after he lost consciousness and stayed in a coma for 33 days.
Apart from that, Vader has a history of alcohol abuse, which resulted in his divorce in 2007. Vader brought changes to his life, after being a “born again Christian” and putting an end to his drinking days.
With age not on his side, his past issues with his body and this fatal blow, it seems like Vader might not have much time left.
