Footage of Jimmy Snuka attending court in Allentown has surfaced online. As expected, he looked every bit as frail as reports have made him out to be. The WWE legend, however, was not carted in a wheelchair into the facilities. He walked on his own. His lawyers gave a public statement, saying that his client was not dreading the trial. He said that Snuka was actually looking forward to clearing his name.

The headache continues for Jimmy Snuka. He is scheduled to be in court for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
