I did NOT like the booted look of Snuka- for that I am subtracting 5 points. However, it's a good old school squash from days gone by.....

The best version I liked of Snuka was the GCW Run when he was tag champ with Gordy. He e was not portrayed as coconut-loving, sea-shell-wearing, barefoot islander. Instead, he was a goatee-growing, leather-clad, boot-wearing , rugged badass

As they started pushing Jimmy as the wild man character under Captain Lou's management, there was one of those press conference type interviews in one of the Weston Publications and when the reporter started off with some questions Jimmy didn't like, the response was something to the effect of "I ought to slam your head against the wall for asking me that."
