RIP Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka

Reading Time: 1 minute

Today, I am saddened by the death of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka at the age of 73. While his main wrestling career was years before my time, he will leave a lasting legacy with the wrestling industry.

The highlight of your career was years before I was even born but it continues to impact myself and the wrestlers I continue to watch today. October 17, 1983, in a steel cage match at Madison Square Garden in a match against Don Muraco, you made a leap that changed the lives of many. This is the memory that I will remember about you.

Fly high.
