Raw Debut Planned For Royal Rumble 2017 During Title Match, Kurt Angle Entering Royal Rumble 2017 Match? Jim Ross Addresses Jimmy Snuka Getting Heat Due To The Murder Case Of Nancy Argentino, This Day In Old School Wrestling History (January 22nd)


7. Jim Ross Addresses Jimmy Snuka Getting Heat Due To The Murder Case Of Nancy Argentino

During a recent appearance on Straight Shooters podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross addressed Jimmy Snuka’s death and him getting heat due to the murder case of Nancy Argentino. Below is what JR said regarding WWE’s tribute to Snuka:

“I had no issues with it. I was glad they recognized it and recognized his passing. For wrestling fans, for many of them, he meant a lot to a generation of fans. I’m glad that they acknowledged it.

It’s the wrong form, in my view, to continue to wear out a topic of a trial that never happened and a court case that’s been dismissed. I don’t know what happened and all this other stuff regarding Jimmy and the lady that was murdered. But golly, there’s a time and place to discuss those issues. And one would think that we’d have enough intelligence to let the family – he had a lot of kids, man.

They have friends and they have cousins and I think to just let the family grieve before we go back on this Oliver Stone quest of proving Jimmy Snuka posthumously was a murderer. It’s ridiculous. It’s embarrassing.”
