WWE issues statement on the passing of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka on Sunday after severing ties back in 2015

WWE.com issued the following statement on Sunday evening after news went public that WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka had passed away at the age of 73.

It should be noted that WWE officially severed all ties with Snuka back in September 2015 after he was charged with third degree murder and involuntary manslaughter over the 1983 death of this then-girlfriend Nancy Argentino.

WWE had initially only retweeted comments by The Rock, Tamina Snuka and Jim Ross when news broke of Snuka’s passing. Since then Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, Mick Foley and other members of the company have tweeted out comments about his passing.
