I guess I only remember him from Wrestlemania 1 and 2, and he got overshadowed by bigger big men like Andre the Giant. I thought he had a unique look, with a neck as thick as his head, and a good name for the business.

King Kong Bundy was a great wrestling villain. He was never dynamic enough to be a champion(did he ever win a belt?) but his character was certainly mean and his size always guaranteed a tough bout. His gimmick of demanding a 5 count to show his domination over his opponents created some buzz when he showed up at the WWF.
According to wikipedia, Bundy set a record when he defeated S.D. Jones in 9 seconds! Poor S.D. I liked him when I was a kid but he was always clobbered by these first-string bad guys.
