James "Kamala" Harris

Kamala Tested Positive For COVID-19 Just Days Before Passing Away

Apparently pro wrestling legend Kamala had tested positive for Coronavirus days prior to his death.

As noted, on Sunday, WWE Alumni James “Kamala” Harris passed away at the age of 70.

Jason King of Bleacher Report, ESPN and other websites spoke to Harris’ wife, who noted that the wrestling legend was diagnosed with COVID-19 earlier in the week, likely due to his weekly visits to a facility for dialysis.

Harris ended up hospitalized after the diagnosis but was fine and in good spirits as late as Sunday morning before his condition rapidly deteriorated and he went into cardiac arrest before ultimately passing away.

For those who missed it, WWE released a statement on Kamala’s passing on Sunday evening.
