• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Celebrate His Birthday
Today would have been the 83rd birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend Hiro Matsuda (Real name: Yasuhiro Kojima).
Matsuda wrestled professionally all over the planet during the 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s, but also worked as a pro wrestling teacher in the meanwhile.
Some of the students he trained, who eventually became house hold names, were “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan, “The Total Package” Lex Luger, “Cowboy” Bob Orton Jr., “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff, “Faarooq” Ron Simmons and “Razor Ramon” Scott Hall.
In 2018, Hiro Matsuda was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the annual Legacy-Wing inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
