WWE legend Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka has been diagnosed with stomach cancer.
In an interview with Bill Apter on Sunday, Snuka’s wife Carole revealed that the 72-year old recently underwent surgery to remove part of his stomach and lymphnodes. She hopes that the surgery will completely wipe out the cancer.
‘He still has a long road ahead of him, and the doctor says he’s an amazingly strong man,’ Carole said. ‘We all know how strong Jimmy is, and Jimmy can take a beating.’
‘He also wants to let his fans know that he’s not done yet,’ she added.
The interview also discussed the life and times of the late ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, with whom Snuka had several intense rivalries back in the 80s (Remember, Piper infamously smashed a coconut on Snuka’s head.)
