Vader's had a successful career in both Football, and Pro Wrestling.
During his tenure as a footballer, Vader played for his hometown team, the Los Angeles Rams — and during the rest of his life as a pro-wrestler — Vader worked for almost every major promotion in North America such as AWA, WCW, WWE, to name a few. He also worked in both New Japan Pro, and All Japan Pro Wrestling.
Vader during all this time went through a slew of problems, not just professionally but in his personal life as well.
After going through a double-knee surgery, the surgical wounds got infected and he thus had to stay bedridden for six months. After recovering from that ordeal, while travelling to Japan for an autograph session — Vader passed out on the aeroplane and went into a coma for 33 days.
Vader was also recently involved in a horrific car crash but had survived without any major injuries. However, it now seems that things are moving along in a positive direction for Vader as far as his health goes and we wish him the best.
