Why not. He's probably going in anyway. Might as well do it now while he can still enjoy the thrill of his induction. Rather than in a year or two when he might be dead.

ader should make it. Not because he's in bad shape now, but because he was a dedicated hard worker for the business. He had a great career in WWE. If the Bushwackers can make it, so can Vader.

Vader is an awesome guy met him a few years ago, shook hands and he wears a like 4x glove. I said hey man you really hit people with those? He chuckled and said"you damn right son, god bless" if anyone deserves to be immortalized it's a wrestler like him.

Heart Disease is a major cause of death in the United States. Its sad that he has this diagnosis but hopefully he can bring awareness to this disease.

Vader, whose real name is Leon White, broke the news to fans on his official Twitter account late Monday night. “Told by 2 heart Drs at this time that my heart is wore out from football & wrestling I have 2 yrs to live , conjestive hesrt [sic] failure reality,” he wrote.

That is so sad. I hope he enjoys his last years and makes the most of the time he has left.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. More than half of the deaths due to heart disease in 2009 were in men. We need more awareness for this disease.

Imagine how difficult and devastating it must be to share that type of news via social media? I suppose it begins the dialogue about heart failure.

Hundreds of people have expressed their condolences to Vader, including current WWE Raw general manager — and hardcore legend — Mick Foley. “Leon is dying. He has been told by doctors that he may have less than two years left to live,” Foley wrote on Facebook on Tuesday. “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.

Can you imagine all the stress and pain his body has been through? It's no wonder his heart is tired. Let's hope he can continue with life until he passes. The doctors have only given him 2 years, but often they are wrong with this sort of thing.
