Death Of Fuji

Mr Fuji passed away this past week. He was in his 80s.

Though remembered by many as the manager for Yokozuna and others, Fuji was also an accomplished wrestler in his own right who had been around for years before going to managing due to age.. He teamed with Saito,m Mitsu Arakawa, Tanaka and several others in his long career. One of his finishing moves was the typical throwing of salt into the eyes of his opponents.

Like Mr Moto, Tor Kamata,  Toru Tanaka and others before him, Fuji was not really even Japanese. He  was Hawaiian.
