Former WWF manager Yamaguchi-San — who was paired with Kaientai during the Attitude Era — has been hospitalized after suffering a stroke.
Shunsuke Yamaguchi, one-half of WWE’s Japanese announce team and the Kaientai manager’s real-life brother, posted an update on Facebook revealing the unfortunate news.
He explained, “Some of u might have heard but my brother Yusuke aka Yamaguchi Wally or Yamaguchi San had a stroke. This is a pic from 1 am est. Don’t know how long he has. Some of his friends from school and Gong Magazine have visited him. Love you brother!!!”
Funaki tweeted afterward offering his prayers.
