Nick Hogan said that they knew Vader because he was part of their childhood and he was a really nice guy. He said that Vader and Hulk became good friends and they were really upset when the heard the news.
Long-time fans will remember that Vader was one of Hogan's major opponents during his early run in WCW. They wrestled at SuperBrawl V and the following month at WCW Uncensored.
