12. Former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Announces His Retirement

Former 3 time WCW World Heavyweight Champion Vader has apparently announced his retirement from Professional Wrestling on Twitter. Below is what he posted on Twitter:

This basically means Vader is leaving his first true love, which is Professional Wrestling, to live on to see his grandchildren one day (which are yet to born).

Vader recently passed out after a match at Korakuen Hall in Japan in April. He competed in a 6 man tag team match where he teamed up with Keiji Muto & AKIRA to face the team of Tatsumi Fujinami, Riki Choshu & Shiro Koshinaka.
