WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka took part in a competency hearing on Friday in Lehigh County where a psychologist revealed he is currently battling dementia. Snuka was charged last September with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter of his then girlfriend Nancy Argentino.

A psychologist described Snuka as a “shell of a man” and “worsening by the month” regarding his current mental state. Snuka’s defense team argued a few months ago that he was unfit to stand trial due to his current mental health issues and that doing so would “cause a severe erosion of his emotional state.”

Judge Kelly L Banach was scheduled to hear from mental health experts hired by the prosecution and wasn’t expected to make a ruling on Friday.

The Morning Call: Psychologist: Snuka a ‘shell of a man’ getting worse ‘by the month’


  1. Ironically I looked up the word dementia today. Anyway,age has seemingly took its toll on Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka as his hair is white and he let himself go over the years.

  2. What does having white hair have to do with taking a toll? Jimmy Snuka is 72- do you expect him to still have Black hair? Kevin Nash is 56 and his hair starting turning white/grey 15 years ago.

  3. Terry Funk is 71 and his hair is still brown. That was the first time I’ve seen him with white hair so it caught me off guard.Also,he let himself go over the years due to his dementia.
