WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler shared some sad news on Sunday night when he revealed that Kamala has passed away.

In a brief message, Lawler briefly stated that he had been informed of the news.

During Kamala’s legendary career, Kamala (real name James Harris) feuded with Hulk Hogan, Andre The Giant and The Undertaker. He wrestled all over the world, and he was inducted into the Texas Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2012. Kamala returned to WWE a few times throughout the years; he competed in the unforgettable Gimmick Battle Royal at WrestleMania X-Seven. He also had a brief run in WCW, where he was a member of the Dungeon of Doom.

In recent years, Kamala had a number of health issues including a battle with diabetes that required his legs to be amputated. In 2015, he released an autobiography called “Kamala Speaks.”

WWE has released the below statement about his passing.
