The Great Muta emerged victorious in his last match.
Muta, also known as Keiji Muto, headlined his retirement show, “Great Muta Final Bye-Bye”, on January 22. At the Pro Wrestling NOAH event, Muta joined forces with Sting and AEW’s Darby Allin to beat Hakushi, Naomichi Marufiji, and AKIRA.
In the end, Muta spit his green mist in Hakushi’s face, and a Scorpion Death Drop, a Coffin Drop, and a shining wizard clinched the win for Muta’s team. Muta went on to attack Hakushi after the match.
