Re: Official WrestleMania Thread

So in 1990, was there ever a particular segment of Fuji reuniting with Demolition? It seemed like they just slowly turned heel, and then one week he was back in and doing backstage interviews with them. I don't seem to remember a specific reunion/heel turn moment.

Re: Official WrestleMania Thread

Looks like Fuji was managing the Orient Express, then during a match against LOD in Fall of 1990, Fuji waved in Demolition for a run in. Pretty unmemorable reunion as I had to search for a bit to find this and I'm not certain that Fuji wasn't already doing interviews with them.

EDIT: Wow, Fuji was 48 years old for his tag run with Mr. Saito. Odder thing? He's four years younger than Jay Strongbow, to whom he lost the tag team titles (along with this "brother" Jules). Good thing there wasn't an IWC back then, or they would have crapped on having such old guys in the company.

Re: Official WrestleMania Thread

Here's a post I made a few months ago in the "What match are you currently watching atm?" thread.

Mr. Fuji was the master of throwing salt in an opponent's eyes. Most fans probably remember the tactic used against Bret Hart in the main event of WrestleMania IX, allowing Fuji (as manager of Yokozuna) to get his hands on the WWF Championship.

However, Fuji used the tactic regularly in his career. On more than one occasion, it helped him win one of his five WWF tag team championships (three times with Professor Toru Tanaka and twice with Masa Saito). Over his career, Fuji was one-half of the WWF tag team champions a record 952 days (beating Billy Gunn by 16 days and crushing everybody else).

Fuji and Saito won their first tag team championship in October of 1981 and appeared to lose it in June of 1982 to Chief Jay and Jules Strongbow. However, when Jay Strongbow ipinned Mr. Fuji, the referee failed to notice Mr. Fuji's foot on the bottom rope.

As a result, a best 2-out-of-3-falls rematch was held in mid-July.

What follows is one of the great miscarriages of justice in wrestling history.

Just randomly searched WM 33 and saw the logo:



No more numbers. We're self conscious of our age. This is Wrestlemania Sun!

The sun is a wondrous body, like a magnificent father. If only I could be so grossly incandescent.

Yeah, they stopped using numbers in their WM logo at 31. Remember Wrestlemania Play? I thought I read or heard somewhere they will only use numbers for the special ones,i.e. 40, 50.

I'm pretty sure he helped train Brock Lesnar. I also think the reason he was on that Japanese WWE Network show was because he wanted to go visit Saito, because he wasn't doing too well

A really good thing about the Territory Era was that, with a dozen plus companies drawing thousands and thousands every week, hardly anybody went underutilized for long because another promoter would grab them up and use them better. But a really bad thing about it was that they had so many spots for so few trained wrestlers that anybody that was half over had a decent chance of still being prominently featured at an advanced age.

Not sure if I look forward to The Rock's WM 50 return or not.

You should, because top heel HHH will really deserve his comeuppance.
