• Hulk Hogan, Goldberg & Mick Foley React To Kamala’s Death
WWF Legend Kamala (real name: James Harris) passed away at the age of 70 on Sunday afternoon.
Kamala’s wife confirmed to ESPN’s Jason King that he tested positive for COVID-19 this past Wednesday. He had been facing health issues over the past decade, so catching COVID-19 probably just made things worse for him.
“Spoke w/ Kamala’s wife. He tested positive Wednesday for COVID which he likely contracted from one of his numerous weekly visits to the dialysis center. Was hospitalized Wednesday night & seemed fine & in good spirits this morning. Went into cardiac arrest & passed this afternoon”

Rest in Peace Kamala! Just as much as he was a scary in ring, he was a sweetheart in real life. He informed me I had knocked out a tooth on a clothesline. After I apologized profusely he informed me he was set to get it pulled anyway and I saved him $30 lol Rest easy my friend… pic.twitter.com/Sd2x1HKo0R
