13 Things You Need To Know About Jimmy Snuka Murder Case

In depth investigation of historic WWE controversy.

The allegation that Jimmy Snuka murdered Nancy Argentino in 1983 has always been a shadow on the WWE Hall Of Famer's career. The controversy is now back in the news, and it is looking increasingly bleak for Snuka, following an arraignment with police on September 1st 2015. During that discourse, he was charged with third degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in Argentino's death. Snuka is said to be in terrible health right now, and returned home after posting bail. WWE has since removed him from their Hall Of Fame, and suspended his legends contract. Where it goes from here is still to be determined, but here is what you need to know so far.

13. The Victim

Nancy Argentino was Snuka's mistress, a pretty Brooklyn native who was 23 years old at the time of her death. Her friend had started dating one of the WWF's wrestlers, and that's how Nancy became involved with the wrestling fraternity. At first, she was said to be dating Hulk Hogan. However, it was Jimmy Snuka who she really hit it off with. She became his minder, looking after him when he was touring the east coast wrestling circuit. Snuka had a reputation for being unreliable with his bookings, and Nancy was almost his secretary / P.A, always making sure he got to his shows on time. Snuka even went with Nancy to meet her parents, and made a good impression. But at the end of the day, he was a married man, Nancy was his mistress.
