Jimmy Snuka dead
#1
been in a lot of trouble of late, charged with murdering his girlfriend years back, but former wrestler Jimmy Snuka died at the age of 73.

He was a big time star when I first started watching wrestling in the early-mid 80s.

not sure if WWE will even mention the passing, due to all his issues.

Remember seeing all the highlights of his past fights. Didn't hear about the legal issues till recently.

"Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka Unfit to Stand Trial for Murder; Ruled Mentally Incompetent" - June 2016
Early onset of dementia, apparently...but the murder took place in 1983!
Strange!

Too bad Tamina doesn't have a fraction of her dad's charisma...!

RIP Superfly Sad
Why is common sense not so common?

He was part of a class action suit against McMahon and his organization, so it wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't rate a mention.
CTE

Related to The Rock by marriage. The Rock mentioned him on Kimmel when he was going over his family's wrestling history.

Even though I don't like fake wrestling anymore, I loved it when I was a kid.  I still have the Superfly Snuka rubber wrestling figure.

Sounds like he had a pretty messed up life.  1 of the coolest nicknames ever!

 RIP
