Former wrestler Kamala has stunned the WWE Universe by revealing to the Bleacher Report that he once pulled out a gun on the legendary Andre The Giant.

Kamala, who was billed as "The Ugandan Giant", led quite the wrestling career as he became involved in feuds with the likes of The Undertaker and Hulk Hogan throughout the 1980s and '90s. 

Real fist fight 

But, it appears that one feud turned into reality, as a match with Andre The Giant led to a real fist fight between the pair. Back in 1982, as Kamala went head-to-head with The Giant, a misunderstanding between the duo led to him pulling out a gun on his rival in the locker room the following evening. 

In the sensationally revealing interview, Kamala - real name James Harris - recalled the moment the now Hall of Famer apologised for his actions whilst being held at gun point. Kamala, meanwhile, told him that he better start 'thinking from now on' as he put his gun away.

Incredibly, though, "The Ugandan Giant" has admitted that he hid a loaded gun in his trunks as he feared retaliation from Andre The Giant. Thankfully, the feud didn't escalate further as Kamala continued to succeed in the ring, despite struggling for money throughout his career.


Now, with Kamala long retired from the industry, he's struggling with illness after failing to listen to advice from doctors when being warned about diabetes. In fact, the former superstar is now without toes, feet and legs after having them amputated.

It was recently reported that the ex-superstar was hospitalized due to peritonitis, which will no doubt worry his loyal fans. At 64, he has been through one incredible journey throughout his career and post wrestling, but he now has a huge battle on his hands in regards to his health.

There's no doubt about it, Kamala will go down in history as one of the scariest superstars of all time and everyone around him will now be hoping that he makes a speedy recovery.
