Jimmy (Superfly) Snuka, the high-flying wrestling legend who spent his last years battling criminal charges, died Sunday — just days after getting acquitted for the murder of his mistress. He was 73.

 

Dwayne Johnson, the actor formerly known as WWE star The Rock, broke the news on behalf of Snuka’s daughter Tamina.

 

“Our family @TaminaSnuka asked me to share the sad news that her dad Jimmy Snuka has just passed away. Alofa atu i le aiga atoa,” Johnson tweeted, using a Samoan phrase translating to “Love the family.”

 

The daughter, herself a WWE star, posted an Instagram photo of her holding her father’s frail hands.

 

“I LOVE YOU DAD,” she said.

The WWE, which cut ties with Snuka after his murder charge, confirmed the death in a terse statement calling him “the pioneer of high-flying offense."

 

The cause of death was not immediately announced. Snuka had been battling terminal stomach cancer and dementia.

His feud with Rowdy Roddy Piper was one of my favorite feuds of the 1980s.

This gives me mixed feelings due to the court case findings and his legendary career in professional wrestling. We aren't guaranteed today. I hope the family can find peace and support at this difficult time.
