Josh Modaberi of Wrestling 101 recently interviewed former WCW and WWE
Superstar, Vader, here are a few highlights:
Thoughts on Brock Lesnar, Triple H and The Undertaker:
Undertaker was just phenomenal and I would say he is the best big man
in professional wrestling history, without a doubt.
I think Brock Lesnar is just a beast, he?s an incredible athlete and
he would be great at anything he turned his hand to, I would love to
see Brock featured more than he is.
Triple H is doing a fantastic job running the company now but I would
love to see more of him performing in the ring as he is still a
Whether we'll see him entering the WWE Hall of Fame soon:

think I?ve earned it. Yokozuna, Bam Bam Bigelow, King Kong Bundy and
myself would be considered super-heavyweights, and I would rank myself
very high out of that group, and there is a time in my career in the
early nineties where I considered myself to be the best big man.

running the wrestling part and then two weeks later we had another guy
doing it and so on and so forth until Eric did it. I think Eric was
way in over his head initially but he certainly figured it out with
the help of Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan and there were times when it
became a biased situation but he achieved some great things, he is one
of the most successful promoters in the history of professional
What can I say about Vince, he?s a genius, he is the most successful
wrestling promoter of all time and just works so hard. He was very
approachable and he has done nothing but treat me like a gentleman.
