Sure sounds like Fred Durst has become a Russian propagandist, and not just to my ears: Ukraine, still reeling from having a chunk of itself stolen by Russia, caught wind of all this Fred Durst nonsense, so they banned him for five years "in the interests of guaranteeing the security" of the country. For years we've all known Fred Durst is a threat to our security, but Ukraine is the only country to make it official.
Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, Possible Murderer
James Reiher called for an ambulance from his hotel room in Allentown, Pennsylvania. He told the 911 operator that his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, had been injured. She died in a local hospital a few hours later. The cause of death was "undetermined craniocerebral injuries." From head to toe, her body was covered with over two dozen bruises and cuts. Reiher was the only suspect in the investigation.
Five months later, on October 17, 1983, Reiher, or as he was better known in the world of professional wrestling, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, leaped from the top of a steel cage and crashed down on his opponent, Don Muraco.
It's one of the most iconic moments in the history of professional wrestling. Snuka's star had been rising for months. With one daring move, Snuka became a superstar. Charges against Snuka in the death of Argentino were never pressed, though in 1985 he had to fork over $500,000 to Argentino's parents as the result of a wrongful death lawsuit. Only he didn't because he didn't have the money.
Snuka went on with his professional wrestling career, enjoying his status as a legend of the industry even though the glitz and glamour of the life faded. Like so many once-mega-popular wrestlers of the era, he went from wrestling alongside greats on grand stages like WrestleMania to performing in small gyms for tiny wrestling promotions in just a handful of years. While Snuka never again reached the heights of the early 1980s, his reputation as one of wrestling's biggest stars ensured he was always able to find work in the brutal world of pro wrestling.
