#Fact
1Well aware of his sense of humor, the WWF (now the WWE), had his Mr. Fuji character perform in a recurring series of comedy skits on their weekly "Tuesday Night Titans" (1984) program, itself a spoof of talk shows featuring their roster of profession wrestlers. These series of skits included "Fuji General" (a spoof of hospital soap operas), "Fuji Vice" (a spoof of the then popular series "Miami Vice" (1984)), "Fuji Chan" (a spoof of oriental detectives) and "Fuji Bandito." Mr. Fuji's flubbing of lines were as much a part of the entertainment value as the thread bare scripts.
2Mr. Fuji is remembered by the public as one of the great heels in professional wrestling. Harry Fujiwara is remembered by his colleagues for his overwhelming sense of humor. He was known to go to great lengths to pull off a prank or practical joke.
3A bit of chicanery he learned from fellow Hawaiian wrestler Harold Sakata's repertoire of villainy was the throwing of salt into his opponents eyes.
4When doing his "Mr. Fuji" character, he would exaggerate his Japanese accent. Mr. Fuji "hails from Osaka, Japan." Harry Fujiwara was actually born and raised in Hawaii.
5Catchphrase: "Banzai!".
6He began his professional wrestling career in 1965. He based his wrestling character "Mr. Fuji" (originally "Mr. Fujiwara") on Harold Sakata's character "Odd Job" in the recent highly popular film "Goldfinger" (1964). Harold Sakata was also a Japanese-American professional wrestler from Hawaii.
