Superfly: The Jimmy Snuka Story
By Jimmy Snuka with Jon Chattman
Known for his leopard print uniforms, hard partying lifestyle and signature â€œSuperfly Splash,â€ Jimmy Snuka is a true WWE legend. At a time when the professional wrestling world was as untamed as the Wild West, Snuka re-wrote the rules and created a technique and persona that still lives on today.
An incredibly entertaining autobiography, complete with a â€œSnuk-tionaryâ€ at the back, Superfly: The Jimmy Snuka Story (December 2012) by Jimmy Snuka with Jon Chattman relates the legacy of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) icon and his incredible journey from the Fiji Islands to the pro-wrestling world in the wrestlerâ€™s own candid words. From the Snukaâ€™s legendary top-rope maneuvers and innovative high-flying style that made him the most popular competitor in the â€˜70s and â€˜80s to his influence on the development of sports entertainment, this fascinating account delves into some of Snukaâ€™s most talked about moments, including:
Â· The night Snuka leapt from the top of the 15-foot cage in Madison Square Gardenâ€”only to miss his opponent and consequently lose the match
Â· The Piperâ€™s Pit segment in which Rowdy Roddy Piper smashed a coconut over Snukaâ€™s head at his own urging
Â· Snukaâ€™s involvement in the untimely death of one of his mistresses and the dissolution of his marriage
Exposing the amazing life of this WWE Hall of Famer with all the exuberance heâ€™s famous for, Superfly presents the ups and downs of a key figure in the expansion and success of professional wrestlingâ€”making it a must read for all diehard WWE fans.
