Big Budah’s blog: Mourning Uncle Jimmy

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

This week’s blog is dedicated to a man who many consider a legend in the WWE and out of the ring, my Uncle Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka.

My parents’ uncle Jimmy, along with ‘The Wild Samoans” Afa & Sika, were the first Pacific Islanders that made me believe that I could do anything I want if I am willing to put in the hard work.

It is that same sense of pride and “don’t quit, don’t give up” mentality coupled with a good work ethic that has helped me approach every aspect in my life.

My feelings are adequately expressed by the lyrics of “Goodbye My Feleni”, a popular Samoan farewell song: “Oh I never will forget you, Samoa e le galo atu.”

Thank you, thank you, Faafetai, Vinaka naka levu, Mahalo Nui Loa!
