There's a small article about a new "book" coming out this Friday, just about the Jimmy Snuka "girlfriend" incident.

http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Wrestling/2013/05/05/20795786.html

There's a nice picture of Snuka & Nancy on this webpage. I've been a Snuka mark for years and I've never seen a picture of Nancy until today.

Not sure how much information will be in the book, but I'll probably pick it up. For $3, I'm curious.

Is it only an e-book?

Yes, only an e-book. I've read it, and it certainly helps fill in a lot about her and her family's take on what happened that night. There's a lot about the relationship as well.

From the aforementioned article:

In 1985 the Argentinos obtained a $500,000 default judgment against Snuka in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia. The family never collected a dime; Snuka's lawyers withdrew from the case, stating that they hadn't been paid, and Snuka filed an affidavit claiming he was broke and unemployed and owed the Internal Revenue Service $75,000 in back taxes. Since '83, the 49-year-old Snuka has been in and out of rehab centers and has wrestled off and on both in Japan and throughout this country. His original WWF stint extended two and a half years past Argentino's death; his most recent ended earlier this year. According to the wrestling grapevine, he's now trying to promote independent shows in, of all places, Salt Lake City, but my efforts to track him down there were unsuccessful.

Are they saying that Snuka was 49 in 1983?

Nevermind. That part of the article was written in 1992.

Snuka didn't live too far from me, about 15 minutes away. Very nice & well to do area. A lot of the Flyers live there.
