Mick Foley: "It's Time To Put Vader In The WWE Hall Of Fame"

Following the announcement he made on social media regarding being diagnosed with congestive heart failure, noting two different doctors are both giving him two years to live, SmackDown Live General Manager Mick Foley is calling for Leon “Vader” White to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.

Foley, a WWE Hall Of Famer himself, has a storied history with Vader dating back to their days as Cactus Jack and Big Van Vader in WCW, including the infamous match the two had in Germany where part of his ear was torn off, wrote the following blog on his official Facebook page on Tuesday morning.


I have been talking with Leon White the past few weeks, so I knew the news might be coming. But seeing it in print this morning was a shock nonetheless. Leon is dying. He has been told by doctors that he may have less than two years left to live. His legacy is so important to him, and he has told me that being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame would mean so much on both a personal and professional level. On a global level, Vader was one of the greatest attractions the pro wrestling business has ever seen. I have talked with people at the highest levels at WWE, and hope and pray that Leon’s name will be included in the class of 2017 Hall of Fame inductees.
