It is with a heavy heart that the Cauliflower Alley Club reports that Shuhei Aoki has passed away in Japan from an apparent heart attack.
Aoki has been a very special wrestling fan and friend of the CAC for the last 15 plus years. He attended many reunions including this past year’s event which took place just 4 weeks ago. Shuhei was so respected by the club that he was honored with the 2009 Red Bastien Friendship Award.
Aoki was only 39 years old.
From all of us here at the Cauliflower Alley Club, we send condolences to his friends and family. He will be missed. RIP, our friend.
