WWE Hall of Famer JBL spoke about his 1998 Falls Count Anywhere match with legendary big man Vader on the latest episode of his Stories With Brisco and Bradshaw series. The former world champion recalls Vader telling him he’s going to give him his all, and that his victory will mean something.
He told me before the match, “Today, you’re going to get the old Vader. I’m going to come out smoking. When you beat somebody today, you’re going to beat somebody. I’m going to leave on the right note.” I always thought that was pretty cool.
The bout would be Vader’s final WWE pay per view. Listen to JBL’s full comments below.
Vader's last PPV match in @WWE he requested to wrestle me, he told me "today you get the old Vader-when you win, you will have beaten somebody". One of coolest things anyone has ever done for me. The story from an excerpt with "Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw" pic.twitter.com/BOsgjcHs2I
