Masa Saito got his start in the JWA and was part of the pioneering IWE. His work in America as a liaison and trainer forged a path for so many American stars in japan, including Hulk Hogan.

RIP Masa Saito.

One of the first wrestling matches I ever saw was Fuji/Saito vs The Strongbows…and from that day, I knew I wanted to be a tag team wrestler.

Thank you for the inspiration.
