GLASSBORO, N.J. Professional wrestler King Kong Bundy has died at age 61.

Promoter and longtime friend David Herro says Bundy died Monday. Herro posted on Facebook : "Today we lost a Legend and a man I consider family." The cause of death and other details were not disclosed.

Bundy, whose real name was Christopher Pallies, was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The 6-foot-4 (1.93 meters), 458-pound (208-kilogram) wrestler made his World Wrestling Federation debut in 1981.

He was best known for facing Hulk Hogan in 1986 in a steel cage match at WrestleMania 2, which Hogan won. WWE said he was one of the "greatest ... big men to lace up a set of boots."

Bundy had guest appearances on the sitcom "Married...with Children."

He was planning to appear next month at WrestleCon in New York City.

Right...... King Kong Bundy was 12 feet tall, made of fire, and could bite through 2 inches of hardened steel plating. The only thing that could possibly take him down would be his Cousin's Al's wife, Peggy.

You don't suppose the King and Peg started shacking up after Al left for the West Coast with that Venezuelan model do you? That damned Peggy!
