In a short statement issued to PWInsider.com, WWE reacted to the news that one of its Hall of Famers, “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka was arrested and charged with third degree murder over the 1983 death of his mistress Nancy Argentino.
“WWE expresses its continued sympathy to the Argentino family for their loss. Ultimately this legal matter will be decided by our judicial system,” the statement read. As of this writing, Snuka is still part of the WWE Hall of Fame section despite the murder charge, a move which many are considering double standard since Hulk Hogan was removed after his racist slurs from several years ago.
Meanwhile, TMZ Sports reported at 3:30PM EST that someone has bailed out Snuka from the county jail for $100,000.
