1957-2019 (Age 61)

WWE has confirmed the death of King Kong Bundy. He was 61.

Born November 7, 1957 as Christopher Alan Pallies, the New Jersey native made quite the mark on the wrestling world, despite fairly limited appearances.

Bundy spent 1985-1988 with the WWE (then, WWF) including a main event match against Hogan at WrestleMania 2 in 1986.

King Kong Bundy returned to the WWE in 1994, joining Ted DiBiase’s “Million Dollar Corporation”. He feuded with the Undertaker, culminating with a match at WrestleMania XI.

By the end of 1995, Bundy was released and hit the independent circuit.

Outside the wrestling world, King Kong Bundy earned several acting credits, including memorable appearances on Married with Children.

Several other notable wrestling stars have died in 2019 including Pedro Morales and Mean Gene Okerlund.

Our condolences to the friends and family of Bundy.
