Breaking: WWE Legend King Kong Bundy Has Passed Away


We have some sad news to pass along. According to professional wrestling promoter David Herro, WWE Legend King Kong Bundy has passed away at the age of 61. New WWE producer Shane “Hurricane” Helms commented on Bundy’s passing on Twitter as well:

“Today we lost a Legend of a performer and someone that I considered family. Rest In Peace my friend. Thank you for believing in me.


“RIP my friend. Thanks for your humor and kindness.

As of this writing, there is no indication as to what led to Bundy’s passing or when exactly it happened. Bundy was a big star for WWE in the ’80s, and owns a nine-second victory over SD Jones at WrestleMania 1. He also faced WWE Hall Of Famer Hulk Hogan in the first-ever singles main event at WrestleMania, facing “The Hulkster” at WrestleMania 2 inside a Steel Cage. It was also the first Steel Cage match in WrestleMania history. We here at EWrestlingNews would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to Bundy’s (real name¬†Christopher Alan Pallies) family during this difficult time.
