*BREAKING* Former WCW World Champion Vader Passes Away At 63

In some sad news to report today, former WWE Superstar and multi-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion Vader, real name Leon White, has passed away at the age of 63 on Monday evening:

It’s no secret that Vader has had a plethora of health issues over the past two years, notably announcing on Twitter in November of 2016 that he had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and reportedly being told by multiple doctors he only had two years to live. ‘The Mastodon’ had undergone open heart surgery back in March of this year to try and correct the issue (which you can check out here), however he was hospitalized again roughly a month later with a bad case of pneumonia. Vader was eventually released and vowed to make his way back into the ring (you can find that here), as the big man had previously stated that he would like to die in the ring during an interview with the Two Man Power Trip podcast.

We here at The Chairshot would like to give our deepest condolences to the friends and family of Leon White.
