One of the best "big man" wrestlers in professional wrestling history, Leon White as Big Van Vader dominated wrestlers across the globe for two decades, leaving a path of destruction in his wake. Known for his vicious combination of brutal strength and agility, Vader was the first and last of his kind. Starting his career in the AWA in 1986, Vader wrestled in almost every major promotion in the world as he wrestled in UWA, WCW, WWF, New Japan, All Japan, NOAH, and the CWA. Vader became the first wrestler in history to win both the New Japan IWGP Heavyweight Championship and the All Japan Triple Crown Championship. He was also the first wrestler to ever hold the Heavyweight Tag Team Championship in New Japan, All Japan, and Pro Wrestling NOAH. Besides his success in Japan, of course Vader also was a force in America as he held the WCW Heavyweight Championship on three occasions. Truly a one of a kind wrestler, Vader always entertained and set a new bar for all "big" wrestlers to reach to be known as a great wrestler.
