A pillar of New Japan Pro wrestling in and out of the ring for decades, Seiji Sakaguchi is one of the unsung heroes of the successful Japanese promotion.
As an in ring performer, Sakaguchi used his judo skills to put forth a believable offense and behind the scenes he would book and run the promotion. Internationally, he did compete for both the WWWF (winning a title in the former) and NWA promotions and with the WWE Hall of Fame recognizing international talent this is not as illogical as it was in the 2000’s.
