Superfly Snuka’s crazy 1983 promo about Sgt. Slaughter

I know many people peg Ultimate Warrior as giving the nuttiest promos in the WWF in the 1980s and 1990s, but there were times that Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka could have taken that distinction.

I’ve watched many times over this looney-tunes promo that Snuka gave before a match with Sgt. Slaughter. I believe it dates back to a card in November 1983 that occurred at Madison Square Garden (thank you History of the WWE website for the records).

I’ll let you watch the clip, and then you can post a comment below interpreting what the hell Snuka is talking about.

My favorite line that Snuka directs toward Slaughter: “I am not in your category as far as the Army, with your thinking and knowledge of your mind.”

By the way, I love how Snuka calls Vince McMahon “Vinnie” during the interview. Poor Vince, he hated being called Junior by the wrestlers (his dad was Vince McMahon Sr.), and I doubt he was fond of Vinnie, either. These types of nicknames probably explain how we arrived at the Mr. McMahon character decades later, and it’s definitely why Rey Mysterio and Chavo Guerrero don’t have the Jrs. attached to their names currently in the WWE.
