King Kong Bundy, whose real name was Christopher Pallies, was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey in 1957, has passed away at the age of 61. WWE confirmed the news on Tuesday. The cause of death was not revealed.
The 6-foot-4 and 458 pounds, Bundy was known as the "walking condominium."
"The sight of Bundy stepping between the ropes was intimidating enough, but his crushing offense proved that he was every bit as destructive as advertised,"
WWE wrote on Tuesday. "In fact, Bundy was so dominant that he demanded referees count to five when he pinned his opponents to show that there was no way they were getting up."
Bundy, whose real name was Christopher Pallies, was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey in 1957.
He then started wrestling for WWE in 1984 and took on many rivals with his Avalanche Splash. Throughout his career, he had many memorable matches, including his fight against S.D. Jones at the inaugural WrestleMania in 1985 and his steel cage match against Hulk Hogan the following year.
