Wally Yamaguchi, famously known as Kaientai’s manager Yamaguchi-San during the Attitude Era, has reportedly passed away.

According to F4WOnline, Yamaguchi passed away after an undisclosed illness at the age of 60-years-old. He had previously suffered a stroke in December 2017. 

Yamaguchi reportedly played a part in starting the FMW promotion and also helped bring the Kai En Tai stable from Michinoku Pro Wrestling to WWF. 

He is the brother of Shun Yamaguchi, who is part of WWE’s Japanese announce team.

Yamaguchi-San’s most infamous WWE moment occurred in the late ’90s when it was made to look like he chopped off Val Venis’ penis with a giant sword. 

If you’re unfamiliar with the angle, the whole thing can be summed up with these two GIFs and four famous words — choppy choppy pee pee.
