I met King Kong Bundy in 1999. I had just started training and was helping out backstage at the show he was on. I’ll always remember him being really funny and just such a great guy. I wish I had been lucky enough to cross paths with him again.— Kejwhdbmwkiajdbsn (@FightOwensFight) March 5, 2019
My thoughts go out to his family.
Rest In Peace to the true master of the Five Count. Condolences to his loved ones. #KingKongBundy— Florida Man (@WWEBigE) March 5, 2019

Hate to hear about the passing of King Kong Bundy. He was so cool to me when I walked in that @WWE dressing room as an absolute nobody in 1986.— Mick Foley (@RealMickFoley) March 5, 2019
