Pro Wrestling NOAH President Akira cables said that Higuchi had in all the years of his playing days are worthy of your very Japanese wrestling and have played in recent years a significant role in the Global Honored Crown Committee.

Higuchi debuted in 1954 as a pro wrestler moved, but only six years later, back again, five years later to return as a referee.Dory Funk Jr. called Higuchi some years ago as one of the best referee in the business, the techniques are also still part of the referee training program.
