JONAH recently discussed his WWE run and recalled how at NXT Halloween Havoc, he had a plan to pay tribute to Vader. The WWE alumnus told Sami Callihan on the latter’s podcast that there was a plan for him to do a tribute to the late star, though it was ultimately shot down.

“If you watched my time in NXT, I did a tribute to Bam Bam Bigelow with the flames and stuff… and that’s still what I do now,” he said (per Fightful). “But on Halloween Havoc, I was supposed to do a tribute to Vader. Right behind me is an actual Vader mask that his son sent me to wear. I was gonna wear that, and someone in NXT knew the whereabouts of the big helmet. I was ready to do it, but they nixed it a few weeks later.”

Vader is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year..
