RIP Mr. Fuji

Legendary wrestling manager and WWE Hall Of Famer Harry "Mr. Fuji" Fujiwara passed away this weekend at the age of 83. The exploits of Mr. Fuji as both a tag-team wrestler (five time tag champion in WWWF) as well as the manager of countless talents such as Demolition, Don Muraco, and Yokozuna were well outside of my exposure to the wrestling product, but even when I was oblivious to the product itself, he was always one of those names that would get brought up by other folks and one of those names that just stuck in my head even if I had no clue who he was. That doesn't diminish his accomplishments and his legacy, nor does it taint my enjoyment of the various sketches he did with Muraco.

My prayers go out to his friends and loved ones.
