Reactions to Bundy, Enzo Confuses For Steele, ROH TV Matches

It was reported last night that former pro wrestler King Kong Bundy passed away at the age of 61. Throughout the 80s and 90s, Bundy competed in the ring for several promotions, but most notably in the WWF. Bundy even faced Hulk Hogan in a Steel Cage match during the main event of WrestleMania 2. He is often regarded by wrestlers and fans alike as one of the industry’s greatest big men. WWE already released a statement commenting on Bundy’s passing, but given the legacy that he left in the business and on those who watched him while growing up, plenty of people have a lot to say about the “Walking Condominium.” Some wrestlers and industry members have reacted to the news on social media today.

Wrestlers took the time today to post some kind words regarding King Kong Bundy’s life and career in the business. His former rival, Hulk Hogan, wished him well, and so did promotions such as WWE, the NWA, AEW, and ROH. Meanwhile, some wrestlers who grew up idolizing Bundy also paid tribute to the late wrestler online today. Colt Cabana talked about wrestling him while Justin Roberts and Shane Helms shared photos of them meeting Bundy. Also, Kevin Owens, Big E, Rusev, and more shared their thoughts on Bundy’s passing. Interestingly, former WWE Superstar Enzo Amore also posted a tweet talking about Bundy, but it appears that he actually may have him confused with George “The Animal” Steele.

Rest In Peace to the true master of the Five Count. Condolences to his loved ones. #KingKongBundy

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.

King Kong Bundy was the first WWF Superstar(and also Married With Children star) that I got to work with when I started announcing wrestling in high school. He would take my calls, give wrestling-business advice, record promos for my school’s morning announcements, participate in my ridiculous school projects, and be overall such an amazing guy to my friends and I over the years. I am devastated to hear of his passing tonight and will always remember the impression he made in my childhood as a fan, and early on in my career. RIP Chris ????

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.
My thoughts go out to his family.

Wow. King Kong Bundy was soooo good and ahead of his time. He was a machine and he never ran out of gas. @WWEBigE stole his 5 count in NXT too. #RIP
