Mr. Fuji was a world tag team champion three times alongside partner Professor Toru Tanaka.
Fuji and Tanaka held the titles for nearly a year, and during their second run as champions, they held the gold for almost six months, according to the WWE.
Fujiwara retired from wrestling in 1985 and became a manager of other wrestlers until his final retirement in the late 1990s.
While acting as a manager, Mr. Fuji was known for wearing a black tuxedo and bowler hat.
