Imagine a WWE Dream Match between King Kong Bundy and Vader – two late greats who will be loved by wrestling fans forever! Okay, every now and then we get an itch to see our favorites cross paths or dream about what could happen. Thanks to video games, we can indulge in these as much as we desire, but it doesn’t come close to matching the real thing.
Take two titans, two powerhouses that were feared throughout their careers.
King Kong Bundy Was A Mainstay In The 1980’s
King Kong Bundy was a mainstay in the 1980s, and he had some tremendous matches against Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant, standing nose to nose and exchanging blows with both of them. Sure, he’d lose since it was the Golden Era and the babyfaces won more than not, but he was viscous. He’d sidelined both Hogan and Andre with his avalanches, and often demanded the referee to count to five instead of three. Intimidation was his game.
Speaking of intimidation, the Man Called Vader had few contemporaries when it came to power, meanness, and athletic ability. Like Bundy, Vader had his own memorable matches against greats like Hulk Hogan and Sting, often pushing them to the brink as well. Known for his red hot temper, aside from bludgeoning someone into submission, he could hit with a moonsault off the top rope. Think of it, a 400 plus pound human being crashing down on his opponent like that.
Its Easy To Envision King Kong Bundy vs Vader Toe To Toe
It’s easy to envision these two greats standing toe to toe, hammering away on each other and not gaining an inch for the longest time. Whether it’s a moonsault from Vader, or an avalanche in the corner from Bundy, these two would’ve been great against one another in their primes.
Unfortunately, we’ve lost both of them within a year of each other. It’s always rough when legends leave us, especially when they’re good people that’ll be missed. We’re lucky to have their matches on dvd or online, and plenty of chances to dream about what would happen if they had faced each other in a WWE main event.
