The Allentown Morning Call has an article on WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka’s pretrial hearing in the reopened 1983 murder case of his then girlfriend Nancy Argentino. The Morning Call, the paper that brought the charges back to light in 2013, reports theSuperfly barely recognized the judge who presided over his case. Snuka’s health has been on a steady decline in recent months as the former WWE star has been battling stomach cancer.
