    Anthony Coombs here. Great questions, I thought I’d score 100% but I missed 2. I missed #2 and #7. I’ve got a few more interesting tidbits for you. Did you know that Superfly Snuka is suspected in the murder of his girlfriend and did you know that Roth was one of the few openly gay talents of the time?
