Legendary WWE manager Mr. Fuji dies at the age of 82
WWE announced Sunday that Harry Fujiwara, who spent decades with the WWE as a wrestler and later as a manager to many championship winners, passed away at the age of 82.
Mr. Fuji debuted in the World Wide Wrestling Federation in 1972 and went on to win the tag team championship multiple times alongside Toru Tanaka, and again later in his career with Mr. Saito. Mr. Fuji is more well-remembered for his work as a manager, having worked with George "The Animal" Steele, Don Muraco, and eventual WWE Champion Yokozuna.
