WWE is saddened to learn that WWE Hall of Famer Harry Fujiwara, known to WWE fans as Mr. Fuji, passed away this morning at the age of 82.

Fuji spent more than 30 years entertaining fans worldwide as both an in-ring competitor and one of WWE’s greatest managers. A five-time WWE World Tag Team Champion, Fuji was infamous for keeping small bags of salt in his tights which he would throw into his opponents’ eyes.

After retiring from the ring, Fuji managed a litany of WWE’s most feared Superstars, such as George “The Animal” Steele, Kamala, Killer Khan, Demolition, The Powers of Pain, Yokozuna and most notably, “Magnificent” Don Muraco.

With Muraco, Fuji treated WWE fans to the classic Fuji Vice, Fuji General, Fuji Bandito and Fuji Chan series. These series were ahead of their time because spoofing successful television shows as they tried to break into Hollywood was the epitome of sports-entertainment.

His career will be remembered by different generations for different reasons but Mr. Fuji, whether as a Superstar or manager, is one of the most entertaining performers in the history of WWE.

WWE extends its condolences to Fujiwara’s family, friends and fans.
I'm not crying, that's just the salt Evil threw in my eyes earlier today.  Godspeed, Mr. Fuji.
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
Tell the world I'm coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Tell the world I'm coming... home

You know... considering the guys he managed could all talk to a degree... and he was living up to his nickname of the 'devious one'.... wonder what stupidity led folks to name him the WO Worst Manager of the Year from 1984 to 1995
Happily Retired From Writing... Wowefa is on its own :)

Evil throwing salt? Now if you said nachos or said he was blowing reefer smoke at you, coconsidering he hasn't had a brain cell in years or left his recliner in his grandmothers basement since 2001...

All in good fun Evil, no meanness intended.

RIP Mr. Fuji

Is it possible I could catch TRL for 9th?
