Brock Lesnar Added to WWE Network Special, Jimmy Snuka Case Delayed, Orlando – WrestleMania Update

on

– WWE Legend Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka will not be going on trial on March 22nd after all. Snuka was scheduled to face involuntary manslaughter and third-degree murder charges in the 1983 death of then-girlfriend Nancy Argentino but the court case was delayed after a hearing today in Lehigh Valley, PA, where Snuka’s lawyers argued that he is not mentally competent to stand trial, according to The Morning Call.

The judge ordered Snuka to be tested on his mental competence and the trial has been canceled until the results of his tests are available. The prosecution argued that Snuka is acting, after a career as an entertainer, and that caused the judge to order the testing. The competency hearing is scheduled for March 18th and if Snuka is found mentally competent, he will stand trial at a later date to be decided.

– There’s been a lot of talk lately about Orlando, Florida being the leading candidate for WWE’s WrestleMania 33 in 2017. Today the office of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer confirmed that they have put in a bid for WrestleMania. Deputy Chief of Staff Heather Fagan issued this statement to The Orlando Sentinel:

“We have not received any notification and are waiting to hear just like other cities.”

– Brock Lesnar has been announced for the March 11th “March to WrestleMania 32” WWE Network special from the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto. As noted, Lesnar is already working the live event the night before in Montreal.
