Leon White -- better known as Big Van Vader -- posted some sad news on Twitter on Monday.
The former WCW champ and one of the biggest -- and scariest -- performers in sports entertainment said doctors have told him he has two years to live due to heart issues.

Leon White was quite the football player. He at the University of Colorado, where he became a two-time All-American and earned a business administration degree. In the 1978 NFL Draft, White was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams with the 24th pick of the third round (80th overall). During White's first season, he was put on the injured reserve list but in his second season, he played in Super Bowl XIV against the Pittsburgh Steelers. A ruptured patella ended his football career and launched one in sports entertainment.
