NJPW have officially revealed The Great Muta’s opponents for his last match, which will happen at the upcoming NJPW x STARDOM Historic X-Over.
The Great Muta is undoubtedly one of the most iconic and respected competitors in the history of Japanese wrestling. During his almost 40-year-career, The Great Muta won a lot of championships and competed in many top promotions in Japan (such as NJPW, AJPW & Pro Wrestling NOAH), the USA (WCW, Impact Wrestling & most recently AEW) and even Latin America.
However, The Great Muta announced in June that he plans to retire by the end of the year, competing on a series of 5 matches in a Farewell Tour. With only two matches left on his schedule, NJPW have now revealed that Muta’s final match with the promotion will be happening very soon.
Through a message on the NJPW Global official Twitter account, the promotion revealed that Muta is set to team up with Toru Yano and G1 Climax 32 Winner, “Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada, to take on United Empire’s Jeff Cobb, Great O’Khan & Aaron Henar at the upcoming NJPW x STARDOM Historic X-Over PPV.
It is also important to mention that The Great Muta had stated he wants to have long-time rival Sting involved in his last match, joining forces with him to take on a yet to be announced team.
