Mr Fuji Passes Away

Legendary manager Mr Fuji has passed away, aged 82.

Real name Harry Fujiwara, Fuji had a distinguished career both in and out of the ring, spending the majority of the 1970s in the WWWF/WWF, teaming with Professor Toru Tanaka. Returning to the WWF in the early 80s, Fuji formed a new team with Mr Saito, with the duo winning the Tag-Team championships. He would hold those titles on five separate occasions.

Retiring from in-ring competition in 1985, Fuji became a manager for the likes of George ‘The Animal’ Steele, the Powers of Pain and Don Muraco. His partnership with Muraco also gave us the classic Fuji Vice segment;

Fuji’s greatest success as a manager came in 1993 when he aided Yokozuna, who was quickly pushed to the top of the company with his WWF Championship victory over Bret Hart at WrestleMania IX.

He left the company in 1996, and was inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame in 2007.
