RIP Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka: Original, Aerial Acrobat of Professional Wrestling Passes at 73; Listen to Chris Yandek’s Rare, 2003 Interview with the Legend

Today, it was reported that pro wrestling legend Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka had passed away. He was 73 years old. The former WWE Superstar and territorial wrestler is arguably most known for his leap off the cage onto Don Muraco at Madison Square Garden, in their famous cage match back in October 1983.

Mr. Snuka also wrestled for World Class Championship Wrestling, Mid Atlantic Wrestling and ECW. In his later years, he made appearances on the independent wrestling scene and at a variety of fan conventions. In 1996 he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. In 2003, I spoke with him before he did an independent wrestling show.
