WWE News: Controversial WWE Hall of Famer added to WrestleCon 2017
Jimmy Snuka to appear at WrestleCon 2017
WWE Hall of Famer, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka was deemed as mentally incompetent to stand trial in the 1983 death of his then-girlfriend Nancy Argentino by a judge in Lehigh Valley, PA earlier this month. Though the grand jury voted that Snuka is guilty for the murder of his girlfriend, his mental stability to stand trial was questioned and he was ultimately deemed mentally incompetent.
Following this, WrestleCon announced that Snuka will be appearing at WrestleCon 2017 that will be held in Orlando during the WrestleMania week. The news broke out recently and it is confirmed that Snuka will indeed appear at the convention and meet fans. But nothing is guaranteed. A new hearing on the above-said case will be held in December to re-evaluate Snuka’s competence despite his lawyers arguing that his condition won’t improve.
It is to be noted that the prosecutors filed a motion earlier this week asking the court to force Snuka to participate Snuka in outpatient mental health treatment for 60 days to determine whether he can be fit to stand trial. There has been no hearing held for that motion as of this writing. Snuka being advertised for WrestleCon won’t help his matters in court when the motion comes to hearing either.
