From time to time there will be a story just too good that isn’t about gambling but must be written about. I don’t know if you are like me, a middle 30’s now guy who grew up on wrestling, but a major blow was just dealt. That is the death of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka or James Wiley Smith. He passed away today of a terminal Illness and last year he had some troubles with stomach cancer.
Alright so now we can talk about the Superfly. He was the first opponent that the Undertaker faced at his first Wrestlemania to start that ridiculous streak. Jimmy was also the first to hold the ECW heavyweight championship, that was one of my favorites. But for me he is best known for this.
At the end of his life in 2015 he was charged in the death of his wife from 1983. He couldn’t stand trail because he was suffering from dementia.
