Well, I think we all know what this means - Team Fuji anyone?

" the whole idea of a 'war on terrorism'. You can wage war against another country, or on a national group within your own country, but you can't wage war on an abstract noun. How do you know when you've won? When you've got it removed from the Oxford English Dictionary?" ~ Terry Jones

Would this lead to the return of salt-throwing?

I like Mr. Fuji, but jesus, he was looking pretty old the last time I remember seeing him managing Yokozuna.....

Actually Mr. Fuji is one of the few members of the old crowd that I wouldnt mind seeing back. Its not like he would have to actually do ring work. And since his primary tenure was in the wwf, they really cant pussify him like they they did to all the former wcw and ecw talent.

Yeah, Fuji with Muraco rocked. Fjui Vice, Fuji General, the feud with Ricky Steamboat, which was all different kinds of awesome, so much good stuff.

Mr. Fuji was just a classic heel manager. I'd love to see him back, but as a heel. He would fit in good with the French 2k tag team. His cane was in more main events than most other wrestlers were in during their careers.

Being the owner of the Team Angle shirt, I would buy a Team Fuji shirt in a heartbeat.

Come on now, Fuji was a lousy manager that never got anyone
over. I'd put him a step above Harvey Whippelman, but a notch below The Slickster. Look at some of the name on that list, The Bezerker and The Orient Express couldn't break through to midcard. Crush had a decent feud with Savage in 94, and got some initial heat after throwing Savage on the Barricade, but that died off shortly there after and Crush became jobber to the stars before his drug problems got him fired.

Yoko became the number one heel because he "hospitalized" half the faces in the company in a three or four month time span, not because of anything Fuji did. Once his initial heat started dying off they put Cornette in as the mouthpiece while Fuji was reduced to the role of flag bearer. *hint hint*

Demo was obviously patterned after The Roadies, with the face paint and S&M garb. Like Hawk and Animal, Demo was good on the stick, yet someone had to play the role of Ellering. In retrospect, Demolition was only behind Warrior and Hogan as the top face act in 89, AFTER they broke from Fuji.

Another drawback, besides the fact he can't speak, is he can't take bumps no more. As he had a hip replacement in 95.

They got good managers or potential managers right now in that company; Flair, Heyman, Cornette, Arn Anderson, Long. (I doubt any of those names would look good in a bra and paintes match however.) And there's a few I've heard about on the indy scene who would be much better suited for that role than Fuji. The Sinister Minister for example.

That was a nice promo by Rhino. But it pretty much just sets him up to be right back where he started in a midcard feud with 3D, after he jobs in a fairly high profile match with Lashley. Maybe he needs to play more of those "politics"?
