Total bummer.
Bundy was a man I loved to hate.
Another piece of my childhood gone...

Bundy is from a time when wrestling wasnt just ballet with mussles.

"Glassboro, N.J. -- Professional wrestler King Kong Bundy has died at age 61 -- hours after tweeting to promote an upcoiming appearance."

Rest in piece big guy.

He was going to do an autograph signing with Al Snow.

I heard he was every bit as nice as Mick Foley when kefab allowed for it with the fans. Not a particular favorite of mine in the ring. But I’ll be the first to admit that I never had anywhere near his agility even as a kid. And we would take some Snuka inspired dives off the top of the swing set.

Sad news. I believe I had one of his LJN WWF Wrestler Figures when I was a kid. RIP big guy.

You cant have a good hero without a great villain.

Remember "The Colossal Jostle"?
Bundy vs Andre.


RIP Big Guy, thanks for the memories.

I'm actually from that town. He was a friend of mine's, grandmother's neighbor. We took that to mean that we were welcome to stop by his house unannounced and say hello. He was a little surprised but super nice. Invited us in, gave us both t-shirts and the old Starting Line-up style action figures. This was in '98 so a bit after his prime but we thought it was the coolest thing.

King of the 5 Count. Rest easy big guy.

Seems 60ish is the going rate for wrestlers for some reason. Is there something else going on as to why most seem to die pretty young?

I imagine his size took toll on his heart but I'm guessing.
As for so many other wrestlers, drugs are the cause.
