WWE Legend King Kong Bundy dead at 61

Pro wrestling legend King Kong Bundy — who famously battled Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania 2 — has died, WWE confirms.

Bundy was a monster in the ring — billed at 6’4″, 458 pounds — he mauled opponents and usually made the refs count to 5 instead of 3 … just to prove his dominance.
He became so popular, so fast, Vince McMahon smartly booked him to take on Hulk Hogan in a steel cage match at Wrestlemania 2 in 1986.
In fact, he booked national commercials and even had cameos on huge shows like “Married with Children,” “Weird Science” and “Boy Meets World.”
Bundy left WWE (then WWF) in the late ’80s … but returned in 1994 as part of The Million Dollar Corporation and picked up right where he left off, destroying
people.
The wrestling world is already paying tribute to Bundy — real name, Christopher Pallies.
Hulk Hogan issued a statement saying, “Overwhelmed by King Kong Bundyโ€™s passing, only great memories,R.I.P. big man until we meet again.”
Brutus “The Barber” Beefcakeย tweeted, “OMG canโ€™t hardly believe my friend Chris Pallies aka King Kong Bundy has passed away.”
“Very sad news he was a kind soul. Rest In Peace Brother until we meet again.”
Mick Foleyย said, “Hate to hear about the passing of King Kong Bundy. He was so cool to me when I walked in that @WWE dressing room as an absolute nobody in 1986.”
