Maybe with Enzo cleared of charges, he went to management to ask for him to return and they laughed him out of the company.

Considering wwe hardly seem to use MSG now I’m not sure how they still have such a pull over them that they would bow to their demands.

PostRe: The Wrestling Thread III: R.I.P. “Big Van” Vader 1955 - 2018

Vader has passed away:

WWE is saddened to learn that Leon White, better known to WWE audiences as Vader, passed away Monday night at the age of 63.

White began his sports-entertainment career in the mid-1980s after retiring from the NFL due to injury. He rose to national prominence in Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association before joining New Japan Pro Wrestling as the masked Big Van Vader. He went on to become one of the promotion’s biggest stars and most feared competitors.

Vader then transitioned to World Championship Wrestling, where he would make the biggest mark of his career. He engaged in memorable rivalries with the likes of Sting and Ron Simmons, becoming a dominant, three-time WCW World Champion in the process.

In 1996, Vader joined the WWE roster, where he squared off against Superstars such as Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker. He also found success on the small screen with a recurring guest role on the popular 1990s television program, “Boy Meets World.”

WWE extends its condolences to White’s family, friends and fans.

Shame WWE didn’t induct him into the HOF beforehand.

Big shame reading that news this evening. Vader was easily one of the top big men in wrestling and his runs in Japan and WCW were absolutely brilliant. Sad news. :(

Gonna use this a chance to gloat about the fact that I got my tickets for the final 3 nights yesterday :P

My outside pick for the final is Suzuki v Ibushi, but I think it's hard to predict what's going to happen as the blocks are so stacked. I reckon there's 4 in each block who could conceivably win it, but I'd be happiest with either Naito or Ibushi vs Omega at WrestleKingdom.

So confused with the new UK tournament. The first round matches are up on YouTube, but not the Network? So are they going to go up on Monday? They're advertising something UK tournament related, but I've no idea if I need to watch the YouTube stuff first. It's hard to look into without spoilers too... :x

Thinking about watching something Vader related this weekend, not sure what though.

Reading on Twitter that Cass grabbed Carmella and the Usos and Erick Rowan had to step in and sort him out and that's why he didn't get his best wishes in his future endeavours.

I think I remember that actually! Good shout. I was tempted to watch that SummerSlam match where Michaels had apparently refused to put him over, and shouted something at him mid-match. I remember it being a good match despite everything that was clearly going on behind the scenes.

Watching that In Your House Final Four. The late nineties were an amazing period for Wrestling. Lawler saying, 'You shouldn't hit a Woman with glasses... you should use your fist'. :lol: Can you imagine one of the announce team dropping that line these days?

We’re him and Carmella still an item or had they broken up before that?

Watching the UK Tournament on the Network and everyone seems so small compared to their US counterparts. Great wrestling though. Small crowd doing their best to keep the noise up.

Yeah that was a lot of fun. Hope NXT UK has the same atmosphere around it.

A lot of familiar faces from the World of Sport special and 5Star Wrestling. A lot of footage being used from various UK indies throughout.

I noticed also on the Network is Brother Love’s podcast talking about AJ Styles’ career in TNA.
