Summary:
"Focusing on the superstar who single-handedly influenced the development of sports entertainment, this autobiography highlights the legacy of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) icon Jimmy Snuka. The wrestler's legendary top-rope maneuvers, innovative high-flying style, and unprecedented aerial ability made him the most popular competitor in WWE. This fascinating account relates how a native of the Fiji Islands was at the center of two of wrestling's most talked-about moments: the night Snuka leapt from the top of the 15-foot cage--only to miss his opponent and consequently lose the match--and the night Rowdy Roddy Piper smashed a coconut over Snuka's head during a segment of Piper's Pit in 1984. Exposing the amazing life of this WWE Hall of Fame member in detail, this record presents the ups and downs of a wrestler who grew to be a key figure in the expansion of the company and all professional wrestling"-- Provided by publisher.
