Default Did Vader used to be any good?

I was watching Boy Meets World the other day, and he was on it, so it got me wondering if he used to be any good as a wrestler?































What company did he wrestle for?

He was awesome in WCW and in Japan. He started off awesome in the WWF, then they cut his legs out from under him, and jobbed him out til he left (last defeated by Mark Henry and an incoming Edge.)































You should watch the Edge vs Vader match on youtube. Vader destroys Edge with a Powerbomb, then Edge just casually rolls over like Whatever F^g and hits him with the lamest Downward Spiral ever.

Vader is one of the greatest big men to ever be in pro wrestling. From his humble beginnings as Leon White in the AWA to becoming a legend in Japan as Vader to dominating WCW (as Vader, too), Vader was an amazing sight to see. A 400-pound behemoth with the grace and agility of a big cat (courtesy of his pro football background), and the strength, too. Vader could do moonsaults!































Hulk Hogan killed Vader in the U.S. When Hogan went to WCW as the conquering hero red-and-yellow Hulkamaniac, one of the first things he did was kill Vader by no-selling Vader's crushing moves and brutal offense. Then (because of his contractually-guaranteed backstage power) had Vader pushed down the card from main eventer/world champion to midcard. Vader left and went to the WWE. But Hogan had already killed the monster so Vader didn't get over like he should have. Hogan had killed the monster and the fans knew it. Vince never pushed him as the Kane-like monster he should have and Vader's WWE tenure was a bust. Vader wound up a midcard jobber. Sad.































Vader went back to Japan (where they didn't care what Hogan and Vince had done to him) and continued being one of the biggest American stars to ever wrestle in Japan. In Japan Vader is still a legend, still a monster, still a huge star (even after retiring).































Yeah, Vader was good. Real good.
