This may not be helpful but I can think of four TV matches that I don't believe are listed in what's on here already.  I can only talk in estimated, general terms and hope Claw's TV listings might be of some help:

 

1986- Wrestled and beat Rick Gantner on an AWA Showboat Vegas taping.

1986- Wrestled and beat Tom Stone for the AWA in some high school gym venue; many clips were edited into Snuka's "Special Look" video which had "Touch and Go" as musical backing.

early 90s- some compilation video I watched had a Snuka TV match against Kodiak Bear which he won.  Not sure of the year or promoter but I first heard of Kodiak Bear in 1992 if that helps.

on those Wal-Mart one dollar DVDs, for that late 90s show promoted by Jeff Bukantz (Mighty Macabee), Snuka wrestled Metal Maniac.  Don't know the exact year or date.

Snuka trained Metal Maniac and wrestled him literally hundreds of times.  They did the same match at every indy show for a decade.  Maniac was an undercard performer during the early days of ECW when (guess who?) Jimmy Snuka was ECW champ.

Yeah, I recall some indy show report of a fiasco card where everything was going wrong; someone had noted Maniac came in, got their payoffs and left, all with Snuka in tow outside and the motor running, something of that nature.   I don't dispute the sheer volume of matches they had; so far only a half dozen or so have made the list.

Oh, I was confused. I thought this would be the Jimmy Snuka rap sheet.

What was the name of the wrestler who was laying on his back and then moved into position so Snuka could do his splash off the top rope?

It was the 1-800 Collect Military base tour and actually the next night

1/16/97 Jacksonville, NC same card same results (except Snuka laready had the belt)

1-800-collect gave us the bonuses of like $200 in phone cards because we took the sponsor to a strip club.  That is another story.

In that case I would've told them to keep their phone cards and give me $200 in singles.

He did buy the boys (well some of us)  a round of private dances.  We got the cards the next day in the locker room.
