The last of a dying breed.
Kane Stands Over a Defeated Vader - WWF Over the Edge: In Your House [5/31/1998]
Kane ended up effectively killing off Vader Time in the World Wrestling Federation completely in this match. This was the end of the feud that the two had kicked off in February of that year, but the things the Mastodon had to say after his loss during the post-match interview did nothing to help the credibility of the former unstoppable monster:
“I came here tonight to compete, I got my butt whipped. I made the biggest mistake of my life, I trained — look at me, I’m so big… maybe, maybe Vader Time’s over.
I ain’t nothing but a big piece of shit. A BIG, FAT PIECE OF SHIT!!
*knocks microphone away*”
By December, Vader would find himself in New Japan Pro Wrestling tag teaming with Stan Hansen.
