Growing up I was a huge wrestling fan, one of my top 5 wrestlers was BIG Van Vader. I would be glued to the tv when he was on there! We have gotten word from reports, that he has passed away at the age of 63 after a two year battle with congestive heart failure. 

Vader's son took to social media to announce his father's passing saying, "Around a month ago my father was diagnosed with a severe case of Pneumonia. He fought extremely hard and clinically was making progress. Unfortunately, on Monday night his heart had enough and it was his time."

I thought we could take a look back at some of Vaders most memorable matches.
