Legendary Japanese Wrestler Tiger Mask Added to WWE.com

Mike Killam

Legendary Japanese pro wrestler Tiger Mask has been given a Superstars profile on WWE.com. As there have been five generations of the Tiger Mask character, WWE is honoring the original holder of the gimmick, Satoru Sayama. Sayama is a 3-time WWF Junior Heavyweight Champion, and the only holder of the title to simultaneously hold the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship. He is also the founder of Real Japan Pro Wrestling. 

Along with the new profile that follows his primarily Japan-based wrestling career, WWE.com has posted several of his classic matches, with opponents that include Eddie Gilbert, the Dynamite Kid, Mr. Saito and Bret "The Hitman" Hart.
