King interviewed numerous individuals from the wrestling world, including Vince McMahon, Bruno Sammartino, and John Cena.
“For 63 years and across the platforms of radio, television and digital media, Larry’s many thousands of interviews, awards, and global acclaim stand as a testament to his unique and lasting talent as a broadcaster,” King’s official Twitter account wrote in a statement.
King also made a guest appearance on WWE RAW back in 2012 where he worked with The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Daniel Bryan, and Kane.
WWE releases the following statement on Larry King’s Passing:
WWE is saddened to learn that Larry King passed away at the age of 87.
The talk show titan reimagined possibilities in the world of television with his iconic “The Larry King Show.” Prominent figures from the entertainment, sports and political worlds graced his show nightly, but King made a special impact on the national coverage of wrestling.
“They are incredible athletes, their fan following is amazing, but their results are never in the paper… To me, if someone is interesting, then I am curious. And wrestlers—and wrestling—are interesting,” King once told Sports Illustrated.
When “The Larry King Show” debuted on Ora.TV in 2012, King featured a special WWE Superstars episode that included John Cena, The Miz & Maryse, Big Show and more. After being named Social Media Ambassador for Raw, King would bring his legendary show to the red brand in 2012. It was an eventful night for two-time Peabody Award winner, as the A-Lister memorably couldn’t help but crash his set and King also provided some life advice to Daniel Bryan.
WWE extends its condolences to King’s family and friends.
