‘King Kong Bundy’ passes away at 61

King Kong Bundy faced Hulk Hogan in a cage match at Wrestle Mania II

Professional wrestling standout King Kong Bundy passed away this week, according to World Wrestling Entertainment.

WWE.com, and wrestling promoter and longtime friend of Bundy's David Herro confirmed the news of the legendary behemoth's death Monday night. Herro posted on Facebook, "Today we lost a legend and a man I consider family". "Rest In Peace my friend".

There's no word yet on what led to Bundy's passing or when exactly it happened, but we will keep you updated. His ring personality was loud and obnoxious, although other wrestlers considered Mr. Bundy one of the kindest and most generous members of their brotherhood.

He battled Hulk Hogan in the first steel cage match of the tournament.

Despite his iconic stature and success, Bundy has yet to be inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame. That same year, he appeared at the first WrestleMania, defeating Special Delivery Jones in less than 20 seconds. To further push dominance, he would demand referees count to five instead of the normal three. Bundy went into semi-retirement in 1988 before returning to the WWE in 1994 as part of The Million Dollar Corporation.

Bundy had guest appearances on the sitcom "Married. with Children", in which the family on the show shared the Bundy name.

Bundy is well remembered by many WWE fans as he was the heel to Hulk Hogan's babyface in the company during the 1980s. The wrestler, who also worked as an actor and comedian throughout his career, has sadly died at the age of 61.
