• Kamala Tested Positive For COVID-19, Cause Of Death Announced

As we noted earlier, 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”
