Mitsu Arakawa

An effective tag team wrestler, Mitsu Arakawa held the AWA and WWWF tag team titles during his long career, but was better known as a singles attraction. His judo chops, throwing salt in the eyes of opponents and breaking the rules made him a hated heel among fans in the 1950s through the 1970s, who still remembered World War II all too vividly.

In the late 1950s, Arakawa had an Arizona run as he migrated between there, Texas and California.

Yuma was one of the areas where he was seen with some consistency. He also appeared in Casa Grande, Tucson, Phoenix and Flagstaff.

Atakawa died in 2000.
