JG's Free Audio Insanity:
RIP Mr. Fuji

The wrestling world lost a true legend today in the form of Mr. Fuji. Harry Fujiwara was a great man who, from all the people I've spoken to, brought joy to the world around him. I had the pleasure of interviewing Mr. Fuji for ClubWWI.com on May 11, 2009. For the first time, I present it free in full here on We Want Insanity.com.

Rest in Peace, Master Fuji.

Fuji

Call him the original Iron Chef.  This week's ClubWWI guest has thrown more Japanese salt than most wrestling heroes would want to remember.  That's right.  WWE Hall of Famer  Mr. Fuji has come to ClubWWI.com  for a rare and devious 33 minute uncut shoot interview you need to hear, boy-san.

From Yokozuna to Demolition, Mr. Fuji lead some of the most well known stars to great heights in the World Wrestling Federation.  Besides his many accomplishments from ringside, the devious one took out some of the top stars of the 60s and 70s and entertained fans of the '80s as co-star of TNT's "Fuji Vice."  This is just the tip of the iceberg.  With career highpoints too numerous to mention, the diabolical Fuji comes to the Club to discuss it all.
