King Kong Bundy

King Kong Bundy, the pro wrestler best known for facing off against Hulk Hogan in his prime, has died at 61. His longtime manager, David Herro, announced the news Monday night on Facebook but did not describe the cause of death.

Today we lost a legend and a man I consider family. Rest in peace Chris,” Herro wrote, using the wrestler’s real name, Christopher Pallies.

Authorities have not yet revealed the cause of the famous wrestler’s death. The wrestling industry and fans have shared their memories of the wrestler, calling him a “hero” and an “icon”.

The King Kong Bundy character was developed by Mr Pallies on the New Jersey wrestling scene, where he capitalised on his immense size. According to his official WWE profile, he weighed more then 458lbs (208kg), and was known as the “walking condominium”.


King Kong Bundy was planning to appear at a wrestling convention next month in New York, and tweeted about it shortly before he died.

Outside of the ring, the wrestling legend made a number of TV appearances, including in the US sitcom ‘Married…with Children”.

Bundy was part of a class-action lawsuit filed against WWE in 2016, which alleged the company failed to protect wrestlers against head injuries that led to brain damage. The lawsuit was dismissed in 2018.
