Wait a minute, I’m starting to suspect that the “Ugandan Giant” wasn’t actually from there. Still the best Kamala.
How many Kamala Harris’ are out there?
Haha, he was pretty creepy when they first introduced him
Hmmm. At least one. I remember another James Harris who was a quarterback in the 1970s.
The total number is unclear, but it's safe to say that if Biden said he was set on naming someone going by the name "Kamala Harris" to his ticket, the Senator from California has one less person to worry about this week.
From the article:
“A cause of death for Harris was not given.”
Why is my radar tingling? Was his name, “Kamala Harris”, a potential embarrassment to Biden’s possible VP/AG candidate?
He was originally the Ugandan Strangler. Guess that wasn’t ,.......Um appropriate.
I got into this ring with him in Fairfield, Ohio back in the 80s’.
Before the match we talked and basically he said if you try anything, Ill hurt you. I put a fake arm in my shirt sleeve so when he grabbed me the arm ripped out then he picked me up spun me around a lot and dropped me a few times.
I remember that ring is not a trampoline, its hard.. RIP
So there are two Kqmala Harris in this world. Looks like the good one died yesterday.
I remember that guy. Heck of a foil to the faces of that era. Quit watching pro wrestling years ago but occasionally fall into a human interest story about some of those people.
If I remember right Kamala had a trainer named Kimchi, who dressed up as a jungle explorer who discovered Kamala in the jungle. Yeah, this wouldnt fly today, but wrestling was so much fun to watch in the non-PC days when Americans could still joke with each other!
How many do you need?
Definitely the better of the two most well known Kamalas.
Kamala was only 70. He was a double amputee diabetic who had suffered a terrible stroke.
Like most former pro-wrestlers - he died broke and died young.
