WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka Dies
Within the last couple of minutes it has been reported that WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka has passed away. Jimmy has been battling cancer and I have the sad news of reporting that he has lost his battle against cancer aged 73.
A lot of controversy surrounds Jimmy Snuka especially dating back to the allegations that he murdered his girlfriend Nancy Argentino in a hotel room back in 1983. Recently he was brought to court but was unable to stand trial due to his detortiating health.
Back inside the ring Jimmy was an innovator most memorably known for his high flying style as well as getting hit with a coconut by another legend Rowdy Roddy Piper in an episode of Piper’s Pit.
I’m not here to comment on his life outside the ring, merely to comment on the sad news of his passing. Here are some of his greatest times within the WWE (then WWF).
Jimmy Snuka’s presence will live on within the WWE due to his daughter Tamina Snuka.
