On Wednesday night I was interviewed on Wrestling Observer Radio about the resolution of the Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka murder case, Snuka’s death, and the controversy over Jim Ross’s remarks on WWE’s tribute to Snuka on Raw (and subsequent apology for those remarks).

Ordinarily, WOR audio is for subscribers only at http://f4wonline.com. In this case, Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer and Figure Four Weekly’s Bryan Alvarez have given us permission to stream the audio. I am having technical difficulties with that task but hope to have the audio up soon. And in an upcoming post, I’ll have more on the confused resolution of the Ross apology.

On Sunday I’ll be interviewed for more than an hour on the What’s The Story Podcast with Danny Murray and Graham Merrigan — voted Best Irish Podcast each of the past two years by Geek Ireland. The podcast will be available on various platforms, including iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/ie/podcast/whats-the-story/id1010889093?mt=2. The conversation, which was recorded Wednesday, starts with George Gibney, the rapist former Irish Olympic swimming head coach whose American immigration files are being sought by Concussion Inc. in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that is now culminating. Danny and Mero and I go on to discuss Snuka and other pro wrestling topics I’ve investigated and written about over the years, and my own background as a fan and a nephew of the famous late St. Louis wrestling promoter and long-time National Wrestling Alliance president.
