Harry Fujiwara known to WWE fans as Mr. Fuji, died Sunday morning.

The five-time WWE World Tag Team Champion was known for his black tuxedo and bowler hat and his trademark move of grabbing a handful of salt (hidden in a small bag in his tights) and throwing it in the eyes of his opponents to “blind” them.

Upon retiring from the ring, Mr. Fuji became one of the most well-known heel managers in the industry. Among his superstar clients were George “The Animal” Steele, Kamala, Killer Khan, Demolition, The Powers of Pain, Yokozuna and most notably, “Magnificent” Don Muraco.

Upon exiting the WWE world in 1997, Mr. Fuji operated training dojos in Tennessee until 2001. In 2007, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

“His career will be remembered by different generations for different reasons but Mr. Fuji, whether as superstar or manager, is one of the most entertaining performers in the history of WWE,” the company wrote on its website.
