The real name of Don Arakawa is Makoto Arakawa. A judo student, he joined NJPW in 1972 with the name of “Little Hamada.” Later, his physical similarity with Rikidozan was availed to make him a comedy character. Don Arakawa announced his retirement for the first time in 1989, but a year later he made a comeback in SWS. After its failure, he never officially joined another wrestling promotion. One of the most important comedy characters in Japan, Arakawa still occasionally wrestles in some shows, teaming up with other “modern” comedy wrestlers.
