The following contains spoilers for Friday’s AEW Rampage Grand Slam.
The Great Muta appeared during Wednesday’s AEW Rampage Grand Slam taping.
Muta assisted Sting and Darby Allin during their match against Buddy Matthews and Brody King, which airs this Friday. Matthews was about to attack the handcuffed Sting with a baseball bat when Muta arrived, spitting mist in Matthews’ face. This caused Matthews to collide with Julia Hart, who passed through a table. Sting won for his team. Sting hugged Muta after the match.
Sting and The Great Muta were both longtime rivals and tag team partners in WCW and New Japan Pro Wrestling in the late 80s and early 90s. The Great Muta defeated Sting for the WCW Television Title in September 1989.
Keiji Mutoh is currently on a retirement tour with Pro Wrestling Noah. Their last match under The Great Muta Persona will take place on January 23 at Yokohama Arena. Earlier this month it was announced that their final match would take place on February 21, 2023 at the Tokyo Dome.
