James ‘Kamala’ Harris dies at age 70

James Harris, known to pro wrestling fans as Kamala, died today at the age of 70. The cause of death is currently unknown.

Harris, who retired from pro wrestling in 2010, has dealt with various health related issues for a number of years. That includes having both legs amputated in 2011 and 2012 as a result of complications from diabetes and high blood pressure. In 2017, he had to have emergency surgery to clear fluid from his heart and lungs.

His pro wrestling career spanned over 30 years as one of the most recognizable giants in the industry, from Memphis to Mid-South to WWE and beyond.

May he rest in peace.

Everyone here at Cageside Seats would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Harris family.
