The Great Muta appeared during previous episode of Rampage to save Sting from Buddy Matthews. It was later announced that Sting and Darby Allin will team up with the Japanese legend in a six-man tag team match.

WWE became part of Muta’s retirement tour and that shocked fans as well. For those not in the know, the company is sending Shinsuke Nakamura to Japan to wrestle Muta at a Pro Wrestling NOAH event on January 1, 2023.

Tony Khan was asked to comment on Muta’s retirement tour by Sports Illustrated during recent interview. The AEW President said NOAH approached him for his blessings before agreeing to Triple H’s pitch for the Nakamura-Muto match.

“Yes. I have no problem with Nakamura working with them. It’s completely cool with us. This is about Muta. It’s great that wrestlers from all over the world can come together and pay tribute to Muta.”
