Top 50 good guys in wrestling history

#22 Jimmy Snuka

Jimmy Snuka flew through the air with the greatest of ease, and landed into the hearts of wrestling fans both young and old alike. Hailing from the Fiji Islands, this talented superstar enjoyed a stellar career that definitely got validated during his WWE tenure.

Snuka started out in WWE rings as an individual who had Captain Lou Albano as his manager. But with every successive match that culminated in the fabled “Superfly” Splash from the top rope, more and more fans gravitated toward Snuka. Eventually, the cheering turned him into a crowd favorite. “Superfly” is best remembered for coming off the top of a steel cage in 1983 in Madison Square Garden on a fallen Magnificent Muraco.
