Another life is gone far too soon in sports entertainment.
Chris Pallies, better known to the world as “King Kong Bundy” died last night after complications with diabetes. He was 61-years-old.
Bundy was a main event talent in WrestleMania 2 with Hulk Hogan and appeared in several commercials and television shows like “Married With Children.” The new jersey native made a mark in an industry that was difficult to standout above all the rest.
A career that spanned four decades, Bundy was an intimidating presence who commanded respect in the ring. By many accounts, he was as big of a gentleman outside of it. Feared by many, respected by all, there was no other like King Kong Bundy.
WETM-TV takes a look back at the big man who changed the game and left his mark on the industry he loved. We remember, King Kong Bundy.
