Another legend who deserved to be in @WWE Hall of Fame and ALIVE when that time came. An all around great talent and good guy that got over and stood out wherever he went. RIP to the great “Ugandan Giant” Kamala. His memory will live on forever. ~PHS#RIPKamala #Kamala #WWE #WWF pic.twitter.com/LnxIM0D59F

Absolutely crushed to hear that Kamala has passed away. Had the privilege to meet him a handful of times. He was a pure sweetheart of a man. The Ugandan Giant/Headhunter was one of my favorite characters in wrestling history.
Unforgettable as a man & as a wrestler. Rest In Peace pic.twitter.com/6mS9bxYUef

Kamala, The Ugandan Giant was a unforgettable character, and the man behind it, James Harris invested so much into it. You rarely see someone tap into a character as perfectly as he did.
Condolences to his family, and friends.#RIPKamala
