Welcome to Crossbody of Work, a show where we break down a wrestler’s career through five of their biggest matches.

It is Vader Time! Vader was one of the best big men in history and one of the top heels of the nineties. This week we’re looking at matches from his career that span the entire decade. Matches in New Japan, All Japan, WCW and WWF, and opponents like Ric Flair, Bret Hart and Mick Foley all make appearances. On top of all these matches, Evan & Javier also talk about: 

  • Skinny jeans
  • Nonsensical match rules
  • Who would be a heel General Manager
  • Big mouth Canadians

And a lot more.
