Here is the backstage story on the announced release today of now former-WWE Superstar Sim Snuka.
Snuka’s release was likely not a a Wellness Policy-related firing, but rather due to creative not having anything for him at the moment.
Snuka was last seen on TV at WrestleMania 25 earlier this year when he played the stunt camera-man at ringside in the already infamous, scary Undertaker dive over the top rope in the match.
The spot was botched, which led many to believe Undertaker was seriously hurt. While it’s debatable whether Snuka was to blame for the blown spot, he did end up receiving some backstage heat over the situation.
Snuka hasn’t been on WWE television since the spot and his release was announced today just before 5:00PM ET on WWE.com.
