Booker T: Vader Was One Of The Best Big Men In Pro Wrestling History

Vader will join Booker in the WWE Hall of Fame when he's inducted into this year's class

Two-time WWE Hall of Fame inductee Booker T has endorsed Vader, who will be inducted in this year's class, as one of the best big men in the history of the business. 

The five-time WCW Champion spoke about The Mastodon on a recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast

"He definitely was one of those guys that made an impact on me. Because it was before I ever got into wrestling, but I was watching NWA back in the day, and then I got the chance to see Vader come out. You know, he came from Japan, he had the big Mastodon helmet, the smoke would come out of it. It was definitely revolutionising the business. Vader was always high on the list, one of the first big guys that would go out there and pull the moonsault off. So, Vader was definitely Hall Of Fame material.

"Definitely high praise to Vader. Like you say, one of the best big men to ever do it".

Booker also talked about the talk show incident gone awry in Kuwait that saw Vader placed under house arrest, as well as his belief that Vader often sought out confrontation.
