WWE fans are in mourning after legend King Kong Bundy died at age 61 just hours after tweeting about an upcoming autograph-signing. Christopher Alan Pallies who weighed in at 458 pounds and towered at 6 feet, 4 inches, began his career with the WWF in 1981. His friend and wrestling promoter David Herro announced his death online. The cause of death is not yet known. King Kong’s first memorable match was against Special Delivery Jones in 1984 when he dispatched Jones within nine seconds at the first ever Wrestlemania. The next year was the vintage Wrestlemania 2 where he took on Hulk Hogan in a steel cage. Hogan took the crown, but King Kong terrorized him at moments during the match and laid down some huge Avalanche Splashes. He would go on to battle other big names into the 1990s, such as the Undertaker and Mabel.
