Vader was larger than life and had a tremendous career in wrestling. Eric Bischoff revealed Vader’s backstage bullying in WCW when he spoke to 83 Weeks. This is what he said:
“Vader could be difficult to work with, and I understood it. Center Stage [where WCW Saturday Night was taped] was a small tiny, stinky little building with no air conditioning and there wasn’t enough room for everybody,” said Bischoff. “Vader was a big guy. Traveling was a pain in the a** for a big guy like Vader, just felt the grind. I get it. I get a guy losing his temper so that I am not holding against him.
“But I had also seen Vader bully people when he was in a bad mood, so the whole f*** you I am not in the mood to do what you want me to do, and saying that to Paul Orndorff, who I also knew and trusted I could see how that went bad. I wasn’t there so I can’t validate or discredit the blow-by-blow that Vader gave, I will just let it sit where it sits and allow people that were there to describe it. But I made the decision to let him go because I believe Paul Orndorff, I knew Vader so I can see how it went down.”
We hope Vader eventually gets inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame which he deserves.
