Wally Yamaguchi passes away at 61

Wally Yamaguchi, best known in WWE as Yamaguchi-san as the manager of Kaientai, has passed away. The highlight of his tenure in the company came during the group’s feud with Val Venis where the Big Valbowski slept with Yamaguchi’s wife.



Yamaguchi’s friend Jimmy Suzuki, the President of Tokyo Championship Wrestling, broke the news today on Twitter. Suzuki mourned the loss of his best friend while also revealing that he’d had a stroke a year ago.

In honor of him, TCW will host the Wally Yamaguchi Memorial Show on March 13th. Several performers also took to Twitter to honor the late Yamaguchi-san.
