Snuka's Hill


Sponsored by Assumption PTA on Saturday, April 12th.

We have teamed with the National Wrestling Superstars, the #1 fan friendly and family friendly organization in the country to put on a night of excitement and fun for the entire family to enjoy.

Among the many wrestling stars of the NWS seeing action, also scheduled for ring time will be former WWE superstar Sal Sincere along with America’s hero The Patriot and - not stopping there - we thrilled to have WWE Hall of Famer ... the one and only ... SUPERFLY JIMMY SNUKA!!!



James Reiher (born May 18, 1943) is an American professional wrestler, better known by his ring name of Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka. Originally from the Fiji Islands, Snuka wrestled for several wrestling promotions in the 1970s and 1980s. He is best known for his time in the World Wrestling Federation in the early- to mid-'80s, and is credited with being the first ECW Heavyweight Champion and introducing the high-flyer style of wrestling to the WWF.


When I was in Haddonfield, NJ, Jimmy Snuka lived in the house next door to his manager "Nature Boy" Buddy Rogers at the bottom of Cole Mill Road. Part of my daily run involved cruising past his home [avoiding the police cars] and summiting "Snuka's Hill"

I never measured it in terms of length, or elevation, or steepness; just how it felt to grind up it.

With all of the moving around I did in subsequent years, I have never been able to find a satisfactory replacement. Although this is close:
