#RIPKamala is currently trending on Twitter and is causing a bit of confusion due to James “Kamala” Harris being remarkably similar to California Senator Kamala Harris, who is considered a front-runner for Joe Biden’s Vice Presidential pick.

WWE is saddened to learn that James Harris, known to WWE fans as Kamala, has passed away at age 70.

He terrorized opponents and thrilled audiences in Mid-South, World Class Championship Wrestling, WCW and WWE until 2006.
