Following some investigative journalism, a cold case from 32 years ago was reopened, where wrestling legend Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka ended up being charged in the murder of his then girlfriend. Back in 1983, Jimmy Snuka made a questionable report to police that his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, had somehow hit her head on a highway when she had to exit a car to urinate. Although the story seemed to lack credibility, no charges were ever brought when the woman then died of head injuries.
Although no proof is known to exist, one news source has even suggested that wrestling promoter Vince McMahon may have had some knowledge of the incident for years, whether it was an personal opinion or what the wrestler had told him of the event. Snuka reportedly had been drinking with some fellow wrestlers that evening that the emergency phone call was made, where it is possible some others knew more about the incident as well. Vince McMahon was at a prosecutor interview following the event along with Snuka to answer questions about the incident, where prosecutors long seemed to include him in the investigation as possibly having some knowledge of the event circumstances.
For now, the wrestling legend is out in bail, charged with one count of third degree murder as well as one count of involuntary manslaughter, as this major scandal for professional wrestling develops.
