one of the most sought-after interviewers. King passed away
yesterday at the age of 87.

The talk show titan re-imagined possibilities in the world
of television with his iconic The Larry King Show.
Prominent figures from the entertainment, sports and
political worlds graced his show nightly, but King made a
special impact on the national coverage of wrestling, WWEs
statement said. WWE extends its condolences to Kings
family and friends.

The statement also included a quote which King once gave to
Sports Illustrated regarding WWE. They are incredible
athletes, their fan following is amazing, but their results
are never in the paper. To me, if someone is interesting,
then I am curious. And wrestlers and wrestling are
interesting, King said at the time.

King was also a friend of WWE, welcoming several guests on
his Larry King Show on Ora.TV in 2012 such as John Cena, The
Miz and Maryse, Big Show, The Bella Twins, and others. He
was named the Social Media Ambassador for Raw in 2012 and
brought his show to Raw for a segment, a segment which was
crashed by The Miz.
