WWE Star King Kong Bundy Dead At Age 61

His friend and wrestling promoter David Herro announced his death online.

Pallies was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey and was trained by Larry Sharpe at the World Famous Monster Factory, making his professional debut in 1981. This lead to a match at WrestleMania 11 vs The Undertaker, which he lost.

Mr Herro said in a Facebook post: "Today we lost a legend and a man I consider family".

Bundy's biggest match came when he faced Hulk Hogan for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship in a steel cage match at Wrestlemania 2. Thank you for believing in me.

By the end of the year, Bundy had wrestled against Andre the Giant in a high profile match at Madison Square Garden called the "Colossal Jostle" with Bobby "The Brain" Heenan serving as his manager.

Ronaldo quit Real for Juventus last summer where he is now setting new goalscoring records. But we don't have that. "That's why I think scoring is our biggest problem this season".

King Kong's first memorable match was against Special Delivery Jones in 1984 when he dispatched Jones within nine seconds at the first ever Wrestlemania.

"Overwhelmed by King Kong Bundy's passing, only great memories", Hulk Hogan wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning. The event would nevertheless go down as one of wrestling's most iconic moments.

In addition to his wrestling career, Bundy also made a number of guest appearances on both television and film - most notably as Peg Bundy's Uncle Irwin on the Fox sitcom Married... with Children.

WWE has officially released a statement regarding the passing of WWE legend King Kong Bundy. To further push dominance, he would demand referees count to five instead of the normal three.
