Mini Complete and Accurate: Vader in UWF-I

Vader's 1993-1995 run in UWF-I is one of the most unique runs in wrestling history. The current WCW champion going over to Japan a few times a year to headline shows for a shoot style fed that drew way more fans than WCW. There were arcade fighting games based around this kind of concept. Some with characters that looked like Vader. He was shoot style Godzilla catching leg kicks and throwing chokeslams. He was too big to fail, and the 12 match run felt like it needed to be formally documented. There will be no listed rankings of these matches as since they all rule, the exercise would be pointless.
