WWE Hall of Famer Don Muraco has announced the launch of a brand new podcast, and in the first episode, he will look at the life and career of legendary manager, Mr. Fuji.
In a press release, it was revealed that the podcast, titled ‘Don Muraco’s Magnificent Podcast’, will feature deep dives into the two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion’s career. The ‘Original Rock’ will speak on fellow wrestlers, in-ring rivalries, and major events that were instrumental to his success.
The first episode features Muraco’s former manager and tag team partner, Harry Fujiwara, better known to wrestling fans as the devious Mr. Fuji.
“For the very first episode, Don focuses on his former manager, tag team partner, personal friend and prankster extraordinaire, Harry “Mr Fuji” Fujiwara. Don talks about Fuji’s life as a petty thief before wrestling, Fuji’s most famous tag team partners, the WWF Tuesday Night Titans skits including Fuji Vice and their failed stand up comedy act, Fuji falling asleep on stage during the WWE Hall of Fame 2007 ceremony and, of course, all of the pranks and ribs that made Fuji so infamous in locker rooms across America… even the ones where he cooked dogs and fed them to unsuspecting victims.”
Don Muraco had a career that spanned over two decades. As well as becoming the WWE Intercontinental Champion on two occasions, he was also the first man to win the prestigious King of the Ring tournament in 1985. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.
