We have some sad news to report this morning as WWE has reported that King Kong Bundy has passed away at the age of 61.

Check out a clip of his debut in WWE below:

From WWE.com:

Bundy was appropriately called the “walking condominium,” standing at an impressive 6-foot-4 and weighing 458 pounds. The sight of Bundy stepping between the ropes was intimidating enough, but his crushing offense proved that he was every bit as destructive as advertised. In fact, Bundy was so dominant that he demanded referees count to five when he pinned his opponents to show that there was no way they were getting up.

The Atlantic City, N.J., native broke into WWE in the 1980s, dominating at the first WrestleMania and memorably challenging Hulk Hogan for the WWE Championship inside a Steel Cage at WrestleMania 2.

Although Bundy left WWE in the late ’80s, he returned in 1994 as part of The Million Dollar Corporation, once again destroying rivals with the Avalanche Splash and proving that he was one of the greatest and most eye-catching big men to lace up a set of boots.

We at Wrestling Rumors extend our deepest condolences to the Bundy family during this difficult time.

Editor’s Opinion:

I have to admit that I don’t know much about him; however I do know that he was a legendary figure in the world of professional wrestling.
