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.

According to Wikipedia, Bundy won some NWA and other lesser regional championships, but nothing in WWF or WCW. He did win a couple of Slammy Awards, WWF/E's answer to the Emmys, but more of joke awards.

Did he demand that he had to pin his opponent for 5 seconds, because he was good enough to do so? I never heard of that gimmick.

I thought S.D. "Special Delivery" Jones was more of a permanent jobber, like the Brooklyn Brawler. But I never really saw him.
