Former pro wrestler Jimmy 'Superfly' Snuka dies at 73

RON TODT, Associated Press   PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Former pro wrestler Jimmy 'Superfly' Snuka, who earlier this month was found not competent to stand trial in the 1983 death of his girlfriend, has died at his son-in-law's home in Florida. He was 73. Attorney Robert Kirwan II said Snuka was taken Sunday to the home near Pompano Beach so that he could spend his last moments there. The family informed him shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday to say he had died, Kirwan said. Lehigh County Judge Kelly Banach on Jan. 3 dismissed the murder case against the retired WWE star after the defense said he had dementia, was in hospice care in Florida and had six months to live. Snuka's daughter, Tamina Snuka, also a WWE wrestler, tweeted Sunday afternoon: 'I LOVE YOU DAD' with a hashtag 'RestWell. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, also a WWE star, called it 'sad news' in a post on his Twitter page. Snuka was charged in 2015 with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in the death of Nancy Argentino, whose body was found more than three decades earlier in their Whitehall Township hotel room. Prosecutors allege she was beaten, while Snuka maintained she died from a fall. Authorities reopened the investigation after The Morning Call newspaper raised questions about the case in 2013. Banach had first ruled last summer that Snuka was not competent to stand trial after his attorney argued the ex-athlete suffers from dementia, partly due to the head trauma sustained over a long career in the ring. Prosecutors countered that Snuka's brain shows normal signs of aging and suggested he might be feigning symptoms. At a hearing last month to re-evaluate Snuka's mental fitness, Snuka's wife told the judge that the family struggles to keep him from leaving home during bouts of psychosis in which he thinks he's late for a wrestling match. Banach then took time to review Snuka's medical records before ruling. Kirwan said Snuka died 'due to complications from his ongoing medical problems.' 'The family is simply heartbroken. It's been a long journey,' he said. 'They are grateful to the judge for dismissing the charges against him.' Snuka wrote about Argentino's death in his 2012 autobiography, maintaining his innocence and saying the episode had ruined his life. 'Many terrible things have been written about me hurting Nancy and being responsible for her death, but they are not true,' he wrote. 'This has been very hard on me and very hard on my family. To this day, I get nasty notes and threats. It hurts. I never hit Nancy or threatened her.' Kirwan said that he believes his client's name will eventually be cleared. Snuka, a native of Fiji who previously lived in Camden County, New Jersey, was known on the wrestling circuit for diving from the ropes and even the top of steel cages in a career that spanned decades. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 1996. .....»»

Former, current Tigresses reunite in Petron

Foton’s loss is Petron’s gain. The Tornadoes may have asserted its mastery over the Tri-Activ Spikers twice in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix in the past couple of years but Petron surely scored a big knockout punch in the recruitment war. Former Foton players Cherry Rondina and seasoned playmaker Rhea Dimaculangan bolted out of their former squad to join Petron. The Tri-Activ Spikers also landed Marivic Meneses while Carmela Tunay is also expected to sign a deal with Petron in a reunion of former and current University of Sto. Tomas players. The Tigresses will join former UST star Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, who led the Espana-based squad to its last UAAP crown seven years ago. Aside from the players, Petron also retained former Tigresses coach Shaq Delos Santos and ex-Foton assistant coach Ian Fernandez.      Tunay will only play in the Invitational Conference and will share the court with Petron’s biggest acquisition and fellow Virtual Playground talent Mika Reyes, who signed a two-year deal with the San Miguel Corporation club Wednesday after leaving F2 Logistics.         Rondina and Meneses would be coming in the All-Filipino Conference together with Far Eastern University stars Bernadeth Pons and Remy Palma, who already suited up for Petron last year, after their campaign in the UAAP. Petron’s recruitment coup sends a serious warning that the Tri-Activ Spikers desire to bring back their glory days when they won the 2014 PSL Grand Prix and 2015 All-Filipino Conference highlighted by a clean sweep of the tournament. Foton dethroned Petron in the 2015 Grand Prix in a dramatic three-game upset before sweeping the Tri-Activ Spikers in their conference finals rematch a month ago. The severely depleted Tornadoes lost seven players with Angeli Araneta, Patty Orendain, Carol Cerveza, Bia General, Kara Acevedo, Dimaculangan and Rondina making a mass exodus. In the Invitational Conference, only Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Maika Ortiz and Ivy Perez are the available holdovers with EJ Laure of UST and Jaja Santiago of National University playing in the UAAP. Foton is now recruiting players and holding tryouts to fill their roster.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles           .....»»

Pascua replaces Acaylar as Cignal coach

A day after the resignation of long-time mentor Sammy Acaylar, Cignal tapped the services of two-time champion coach George Pascua for the coming fifth season of the Philippine Superliga. Pascua, who steered Petron to the 2014 Grand Prix and 2015 All-Filipino Conference crowns, accepted the deal Wednesday. The mentor will try to revive the HD Spikers, who in recent conferences dipped in performance after their runner up finishes in the Inaugural Conference and in the 2013 Grand Prix.   “Bagong challenge sa akin ito and siyempre excited na rin ako,” said Pascua, who was replaced by Shaq Delos Santos in Petron heading into the 2016 Grand Prix. Pascua will inherit a powerhouse roster bannered by veterans Paneng Mercado, Cherry Vivas, Jheck Dionela, Mylene Paat and Janine Marciano with Michelle Laborte now serving as assistant coach. In the 2014 Grand Prix, Pascua piloted Petron to its first-ever title behind American reinforcement Alaina Bergsma and Brazilian Erica Adachi.  Petron followed it up with a historic 13-0 sweep of the 2015 All-Filipino Conference with a solid roster led by Aby Marano, Fille Cainglet-Cayetano, Dindin Santiago-Manabat and Most Valuable Player Rachel Anne Daquis. But the Tri-Activ Spikers failed to defend its Grand Prix crown against the emerging power Foton led by 6-foot-5 Jaja Santiago and American import Lindsay Stalzer. Petron missed a spot in the Finals of the 2016 All-Filipino Conference. Acaylar resigned Tuesday after Cignal finished sixth in last year’s All-Filipino and last in the Grand Prix.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles           .....»»

Murder case dismissed against ex-wrestler 'Superfly' Snuka

  ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania judge on Tuesday dismissed the murder case against former pro wrestler Jimmy 'Superfly' Snuka, saying he is not competent to stand trial in the 1983 death of his girlfriend. The decision by Lehigh County Judge Kelly Banach comes a month after Snuka's lawyer told the court that his 73-year-old client has dementia, is in hospice care in Florida and has six months to live.
