Wally Yamaguchi dead at age 60

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Yusuke “Wally” Yamaguchi reportedly died at age 60. The cause of death was not revealed, but he suffered a stroke in 2017. Yamaguchi was best known in the United States as the manager of the Kaientai faction in WWE. Yamaguchi’s younger brother Shun works as a WWE broadcast team member.

Powell’s POV: Yamaguchi was also a major player in the Japanese pro wresting media. Dave Meltzer was friends with Yamaguchi and wrote a piece on his death at WrestlingObserver.com. My condolences to Yamaguchi’s friends and family.
