Wrestling Legend King Kong Bundy Dead At 61

Wrestler King Kong Bundy has passed away. The iconic and legendary wrestler was one of the founding fathers of wrestling as we know it.

The New Jersey native, whose real name is Christopher Pallies, was known for his enormous stature inside the ring. He was 6-foot-4 and weighed 458 pounds. People called him the “walking condominium.”

Pallies was 61 years old. One of his biggest moments in WWE was wrestling Hulk Hogan for the title at Wrestlemania 2. He would leave WWE in the 1980s only to return once more as part of The Million Dollar Corporation faction in 1994 before he left the company a year later.
