"Today we lost a Legend and a man I consider family". Later, Bundy would forge an alliance with Big John Studd, before leaving WWE in 1988, taking several years off from wrestling before a one-off ECW appearance in 1993. Details on the wrestler's passing or possible cause of death haven't yet been revealed, though some of Bundy's friends and colleagues are taking to social media to offer their support. "Rest in peace, Chris". He challenged Hulk Hogan in a memorable steel cage match at WrestleMania 2.

There's no word yet on what led to Bundy's passing or when exactly it happened, but we will keep you updated. "In fact, Bundy was so dominant that he demanded referees count to five when he pinned his opponents to show that there was no way they were getting up".

It was set to be Woods' 19th appearance at the event, which celebrates its 40th anniversary when play begins. The Players Championship is from March 14 to 17 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

However, he made history by winning a match against SD Jones in only nine seconds during the first Wrestlemania.

It was a historic event, being the first ever singles match at the now iconic pay-per-view event, as well as the first cage match on that stage. After that time, Bundy performed regularly on the independent scene before retiring in 2007. With the advent of digital technology, wrestling fans can now watch any of Bundy's classic matches on the WWE Network, which many are undoubtedly already doing in the wake of the wrestler's death.
