Jimmy Snuka has died at the age of 73
His death comes nearly two weeks after Judge Kelly L. Banach of Lehigh County in Pennsylvania dismissed charges of third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter against the wrestling legend because he was incompetent to stand trial for the 1983 murder of his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino.
Snuka’s legendary career in wrestling, which began in 1968, spanned over 30 years. He is best known for his time in WWE in the 1980s and is credited with introducing the high-flying style of wrestling to Vince McMahon’s promotion. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 1996.
