<P>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&#8217;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&#8217;s most talked-about moments: the night Snuka leapt from the top of the 15-foot cage&#8212;only to miss his opponent and consequently lose the match&#8212;and the night Rowdy Roddy Piper smashed a coconut over Snuka&#8217;s head during a segment of Piper&#8217;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.
