AEW’s Sting will return to Japan for the retirement tour for wrestling veteran the Great Muta, following Muta’s appearance at Rampage: Grand Slam.
During the September 23 show, the Great Muta sided with The Icon in the Sting & Darby Allin vs House of Black No DQ match, following interference from Julia Hart.
Pro Wrestling NOAH has now announced that Sting will participate in the ‘Great Muta Final “Bye Bye”‘ event on January 22 2023. This event will feature Keiji Mutoh’s final bout as the Great Muta.
The promotion revealed that Sting will be part of Muta’s final match.
The Japanese star’s retirement tour started in July, with a match against Kaito Kiyomiya.
Mutoh announced his upcoming retirement at CyberFight Festival 2022. The veteran has wrestled all over the world since his debut in 1984, notably holding the IWGP Heavyweight Championship four times, and the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship on one occasion.
