Some sad news came out late last evening that wrestling legend, in WWE and other promotions, King Kong Bundy passed away at the still young age of 61.
WWE paid tribute to the man that main-evented WrestleMania 2 against Hunk Hogan in a Steel Cage suit, posting this on their website today:
WWE is saddened to learn that WWE Legend King Kong Bundy has died.
Bundy was suitably called the “& ldquo; walking condo,” & rdquo; standing at a remarkable 6-foot-4 as well as evaluating 458 pounds. The view of Bundy stepping between the ropes was frightening sufficient, yet his crushing violation verified that he was every bit as devastating as advertised. As a matter of fact, Bundy was so powerful that he demanded umpires count to 5 when he pinned his opponents to show that there was no chance they were getting up.
The Atlantic City, N.J., indigenous burglarized WWE in the 1980s, controling at the first WrestleMania as well as memorably tough Hunk Hogan for the WWE Championship inside a Steel Cage at WrestleMania 2.
Although Bundy left WWE in the late ’& rsquo; 80s, he returned in 1994 as part of The Million Dollar Firm, once more destroying rivals with the Avalanche Sprinkle and proving that he was among the greatest as well as most eye-catching huge males to tie up a collection of boots.
WWE prolongs its condolences to Bundy’& rsquo; s family members, pals
as well as fans. Smith & rsquo; s View: I always liked Bundy a whole lot; he was a traditional big male heel and also an apparently a pretty good guy outside of the ring. A genuine pity that he hasn’& rsquo; t been inducted right into the WWE Hall of Fame. In behalf of everyone right here at Vortainment, are ideas and petitions are with the friends and family of King Kong Bundy.
