He was the first victum of the Undertakers iconic wrestlemania undefeated streak. Now Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka has died at 73.
Snuka, known for his high-flying offensive moves during decades as a wrestler, died at his son-in-law’s home in Florida, surrounded by family and friends, according to his lawyer Robert Kirwan, who said the former wrestler had battled various ailments including dementia and had been in hospice care, reports reuters.
You may recall, A judge in Allentown, Pennsylvania on Jan. 3 ended the case against Snuka after ruling him mentally incompetent to stand trial over the death of Nancy Argentino, who was 23 at the time of her death. Snuka long had been suspected in Argentino’s death but charges were not brought against him until 2015, 32 years after her death. The Rock had this to say.
