WWE should put him in the HOF this year. No excuse not to, it should have been done before.

I hate that I even have to bring it up. But knowing the shit he pulled during his recent uk tour. Dont be suprised if this isnt some pity drive to get bookings. I'm sure he will die like Superstar Billy Graham has supposed to die for the last 15 years. Once a carnie always a carnie.

It was a very informal way that he announced it.. with terrible grammar on twitter.

General wrestler asshole behavior. Ospreay talks about it in one of those highspots.com videos. He got a huge tour out of bitching on twitter about Will. He agreed to lose etc etc. Gets there. Changes his mind and refuses to leave his hotel room. etc etc bullshit like that. The guy figured out how to work people on twitter and get bookings. Would not be suprised if he's trying again. ohhh come see Vader farewell tour!

Mick Foley posted about this on Facebook, basically saying he's talked to Vader for weeks, and that this health demise is legit. He's pushing for WWE HOF induction.

With all due respect to Foley. He's a pretty big idiot when it comes to believing people. He also said he had been talking to Cynthia and Bobby Heenan for weeks and that Bobbys twitter was real. He was talking to imposters.

I'm honestly shocked Billy Graham, Jake Roberts, and Scott Hall are all still alive.

It's not really that hard to believe that a 61 year old man who is incredibly overweight and has been wrestling at least semi actively for 32 years might actually have major heart problems.
