Information from The 1996 Wrestling Almanac and Book of Facts. A locker room altercation between Paul Orndorff and Big Van Vader on August 30, 1995, saw Orndorff clearly get the better of one of the toughest men in the sport – and led to vader leaving WCW. The fight, which was instigated by Vader’s belligerent behavior toward Orndorff, and fueled by Orndorff’s challenges to Vader, led to a locker room melee with Orndorff dominating the 450-pound monster. After the fight was broken up by several wrestlers, Vader again challenged Orndorff – and again was destroyed by the 46-year-old veteran. For starting the backstage fight with Orndorff, Vader was indefinitely suspended by WCW – and was eventually dropped from WCW’s roster. At press time, Vader is negotiating with several promotions in Japan, as well as the WWF. Should Vader wind up wrestling in the WWF, his 1995 brawl with Orndorff could be the one match that most affects the face of wrestling in 1996.
