Football News

Before 2015, the WWE had only ever tried to scrub one man from their history - Chris Benoit.

This year, we had the same fate befall Hulk Hogan, after video emerged from his leaked sex tape of him going on a disgraceful racial rant and actually admitting that he is a racist. That got Hogan completely removed from the WWE website.

The same may have just happened to Jimmy Snuka, after the Hall of Famer was charged with murder.

Snuka Scrubbed

According to a report from Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc, the WWE has apparently removed Superfly's profile from the Hall of Fame section on their website as he faces the charges.

"WWE has removed WWE Hall of Famer "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka's profile from their official website after Snuka was charged on Monday with involuntary manslaughter and third-degree murder for the 1983 death of Nancy Argentino," the report said.

"His profile has also been removed from the site's Hall of Fame section."

No Trace

Snuka is only the second WWE performer to have their profile removed from the company's Hall of Fame section on the site. Hogan was removed this past July for his aforementioned racist comments.

Unlike Hogan, as of this writing, Snuka hasn't been completely scrubbed from the site and you can still find Snuka related news items and videos. If he is found guilty of the manslaughter or murder charges, then that will change.

It remains to be seen if the two will actually be removed from the Hall of Fame altogether, and have the honor taken away from them.
