Former WWE legend King Kong Bundy has died. The wrestling company announced that he has passed on at the age of 61.


King Kong Bundy was a New Jersey native whose real name is Christopher Pallies. He was known for his enormous stature as he towered over his opponents at 6-foot-4 and 458 pounds.

Earlier today the WWE released a statement announcing that the legend had passed on. He was only sixty-one years old.

Tributes to the former wrestler have flooded social media. He was well known for his wrestling and personality.


One of his most remembered moments in WWE was wrestling Hulk Hogan for the WWE title at Wrestlemania 2. He left WWE in the 1980s only to return in 1994.

In 2016, Bundy was part of a class action lawsuit filed against WWE. The lawsuit accused the company of failing to care for the wrestlers as they were suffering head injuries. The case was eventually dismissed by a U.S. district judge in September 2018.
