Former WWE star Ryan Sakoda passes away

We are sad to report that former WWE star Ryan Sakoda has passed away. According to his obiturary, he passed away on September 2 at the age of 48.

Sakoda trained under Rick Bassman and started wrestling for UPW in Califonia. He also wrestled for ZERO-ONE and then signed with WWE in 2003 where he had a brief run as one of Tajiri’s henchmen. He also teamed with Akio, who would later be known as Jimmy Wang Yang.

Sakoda also had a run in Wrestle Society X and years later he was part of a lawsuit against WWE that claimed that he suffered serious injuries during his time working for them. He claimed that he suffered from headaches, severe migraines, memory loss, and severe depression because of the blows he took while he wrestled for WWE. The cases were dismissed by the United States Supreme Court.

We send our deepest condolences to Sakoda’s family and friends.
