It’s no secret that WWE legend and multiple time WCW World Heavyweight Champion Vader has been marred by health issues over the past couple of years. ‘The Mastodon’ was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, undergoing surgery to correct the issue back in March (which can be found here). Vader seemed to be on the mend, but kept fans updated on Twitter and was forced back into the hospital as complications arose. Earlier in the week, the big man commented that he was looking to get back into the ring again and was waiting on medical clearance (which is here), however he also underwent another procedure.
Vader revealed on Twitter yesterday that he had another heart surgery, this time to correct an irregular heartbeat caused by an atrial fibulation (better known as A-fib), which is an irregular heartbeat that can lead to blood clots:
