Kamala is an imposing figure in pro wrestling history. He was presented as “The Ugandan Giant” and often walked to the ring with a tribal mask, spear, and shield. He terrified us as children and in later years unfortunately faded from the minds of most Rock and ‘Restling era wrestlers do. His health has deteriorated and now it appears we may lose the legend. Here’s what WWE released about the giant and his current health.
