Trivia: King Kong Bundy
  • He Also Did: Played "Gorgo" in Richard Pryor's 1988 comedy Moving.
    • He was the big bald wrestler in AFLAC's wrestling commercial.
    • Stand-Up Comedy: Has performed at clubs.
  • WrestleCrap: The infamous Heroes of Wrestling PPV was originally supposed to have a main event of Yokozuna vs. King Kong Bundy. However, Jake "The Snake" Roberts' infamous drunken performance in his "match" with Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart got it hastily turned into a tag match, with Bundy/Neidhart vs. Jake/Yoko. The monsters were tagged in, with Bundy splashing and pinning Jake, who wasn't the legal man, and the ref quickly counting to three to end the whole mess. Yoko never even got into the ring (due to the fact that he had grown so fat that he couldn't get a wrestling license since he couldn't get the needed medical clearance), and the show went off the air some 22 minutes ahead of schedule without even a farewell from the announcers.
