His ring name was Mr. Fuji and during the 80's was a very high profile manager for many pro wrestlers. His claim too fame was throwing salt in the eyes of his wrestlers opponents.
He spent many years inside the ring, but after he retired he managed some of the most infamous wrestlers in history including Don Muraco, George "The Animal" Steele, and Yokozuna.
He will be greatly missed by fans. He was 82.
