Backstage News – Philadelphia, PA Submits A Bid To Host WWE WrestleMania 34

Crossing Broad reports that Philadelphia has reportedly submitted a bid to get WrestleMania 34 in 2018. The city previously held WrestleMania XV in 1999.

The city made “token offers” for WrestleMania 31 and 32, which ended up going to Santa Clara and Dallas. Philadelphia Sports Congress Executive Director Larry Needle later said that the fact that venues were unavailable is why no serious bids were made. There was also rumors that Lincoln Field Memorial representatives were “difficult” to work with and treated the WWE like they were “doing them a favor.” A similar attitude was rumored during negotiations for the 2012 Winter Classic which Citizens Bank Park eventually hosted.

Now a more substantial bid has been placed to get the event in 2018. Lincoln Financial Field would host WrestleMania 34, while NXT and RAW events will be at the Wells Fargo Center and WrestleMania AXXESS will happen at the Convention Center (host of the WrestleMania RAGE party in 1999).

​BREAKING UPDATE: Jimmy Snuka Arrested & Charged With Murder

WWE Hall of Famer “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka was arrested this morning at his New Jersey home and will be charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter for the death of his girlfriend more than 32 years ago.

Snuka was arraigned at 1:50 p.m. Tuesday at the Lehigh County Central Booking Center. He was sent to county jail under $100,000 bail.

Earlier this month, Snuka’s wife revealed that he was diagnosed with stomach cancer.

Back on May 10th, 1983, Snuka wrestled on a WWE TV taping from the Allentown Fairgrounds in Pennsylvania. When he got back to his hotel room, he alleged that he found Nancy Argentino gasping for air and oozing yellow fluid from her nose and mouth. She died the following day from traumatic brain injures. She also had a number of cuts and bruises which suggested domestic abuse.

The autopsy report stated her injuries were consistent with being hit with a “stationary object.” The forensic pathologist suggested that the case be invested as a homicide, but no charges were filed until today.

An investigation was reopened last year when Pennsylvania’s Morning Call newspaper published an in-depth story on the alleged murder, which led to a grand jury investigation that ultimately resulted in Snuka being charged.

BREAKING NEWS: Superfly Jimmy Snuka Charged With Murder In 1983 Death Of Girlfriend

A news conference is being held in in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania officially announcing that WWE Hall of Famer “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka has been charged with third degree murder and a lesser included charge of involuntary manslaughter in the 1983 death of Nancy Argentino. While the Allentown Morning Call was the first to report that he’s being charged, Sarah Cassi of Lehigh Valley Live was the first to name the specific charges on her Twitter account.

According to Cassi’s ongoing account of the news conference, Snuka is believed to be posting $10,000 bond n $100,000 bail right about now, with the surrender of his passport as a condition of his release. With Snuka undergoing cancer treatment, it was felt that incarcerating him would be an undue financial burden on taxpayers. The grand jury’s findings will be released soon, but the district attorney noted that they cited Snuka’s inaction in getting Argentino medical attention for her head injury. Snuka appeared before the grand jury, but he didn’t testify, while several new witnesses did.

EWN will have an update shortly

​More Backstage News On Yesterday’s Shooting At The WWE Performance Center – Lita Involved?, More

UPDATE: 29-year-old Armando Alejandro Montalvo was the man that was shot outside of the performance center. This was the third incident with him recently, which also includes one two weeks ago where he was swinging a chain. WFTV has an article up, which features comments from friends of Montalvo. Those friends noted that he had some issues mentally, but that they never expected anything like this to happen.

There is video online of Montalvo discussing former WWE Diva AJ Lee, but it appears that Montalvo was recently targeting Lita, who has been working at the Performance Center as part of Tough Enough. When Montalvo was arrested back on August 4th, he was in possession of a sign for Lita. WWE did take out an injunction against Montalvo, but when they attempted to have it served at his home on August 18th, his mother refused to take it.

Overall, a flat show. I have been to better house shows than this Raw. Very disappointing. The Rusev vs. Dolph Ziggler match was okay. The crowd just really did not get into much. The crowd did go crazy for Sting, but other than that everyone just seem bored in my section at least.

The Divas’ Beat The Clock Challenge matches were awful.

The Dean Ambrose vs. Braun Strowman match was good because it looks like it is setting up a good storyline, but I’m sure WWE will screw that up. I give the show a C letter grade.

Dot Net reader Mike Green passed along word that the dark main event was John Cena and Randy Orton beating Seth Rollins and Sheamus.
