The WWE is taking the next steps in removing the footprints of legendary wrestler Jimmy Snuka after his arrest on 3rd degree murder and involuntary manslaughter charges.
In a released statement, “Jimmy Snuka’s non-wrestling ‘legends’ contract has been suspended and we are currently removing his image from our media platforms pending the outcome of this case.”
Snuka, 72, was charged by a Lehigh County grand jury that determined he repeatedly assaulted his then 23-year old girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, and left her in bed to die in a motel bed in 1983.
Jimmy Snuka’s own autobiography may have been the smoking gun that will eventually put him away. Authorities compared excerpts from the book with the original testimony that he gave and it didn’t add up, which led to the case being reopened.
