It's time. It's time. It's Vader time!
There were rumblings last night (June 11, 2012) that Big Van Vader was in Connecticut and he might be showing up in Hartford, the very same city hosting Monday Night Raw. When Heath Slater was introduced and cut a promo saying, "It's Slater time," it was confirmed.
Then Leon White came waltzing out for his big return to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), the first time he had appeared with the company in seven years. And wouldn't you know it, the 57-year-old looked pretty damn good inside the ring.
Sure, he was a little thick around the middle and you could notice the aging process. But all told, he certainly didn't embarrass himself or anyone else and the crowd in Hartford showered him with "you still got it" chants. It was a feel good moment in a business that seems to be short on moments like it.
