In a post on WWE.com this afternoon, it was announced that WWE Hall of Famer Mr. Fuji (real name Harry Fujiwara) passed this morning at the age of 82. No cause of death was announced.
Fujiwara spent over 30 years in professional wrestling, both in the ring and as a manager. He was a successful tag team wrestler at one time, with five world tag team championships to his name. Once he retired from in-ring competition, he became a manager to a number of WWE superstars. He worked with Demolition, The Powers of Pain, Yokozuna, and Don Muraco among others.
His run with Muraco was particularly notable because of how they spoofed various Hollywood television shows with various skits. We got to see Fuji Vice, Fuji Chan, and Fuji Bandito among others.
Our condolences to the Fujiwara family and friends and all of the fans of Mr. Fuji.
