AEW Star Added To Great Muta’s Retirement Match
A former champion in AEW will be part of one of the biggest matches in Japanese wrestling history when he teams with The Great Muta in his final match.
Sting has rolled back the years since joining AEW in late 2020, competing in tag team bouts primarily with Darby Allin and remaining undefeated in the company at the age of 63.
The Icon found himself in a spot of bother at Rampage Grand Slam in New York City when he and Allin teamed up to face The House of Black. Late on in the match, Buddy Matthews had the veteran in trouble with his hands tied behind his back sat prone on a chair while Matthews threatened to use the ex-WCW star’s trademark baseball against him.
The lights went out and when they came back on the two men were joined in the ring by the Japanese icon The Great Muta. Muta looked to initially take advantage of his former rival before turning on Matthews, delivering the dreaded poison mist.
It was previously announced by Pro Wrestling NOAH that Sting will be part of The Great Muta’s retirement match in early 2023 in Yokohama Arena. Now it has also been confirmed that former TNT Champion Darby Allin will also be a part of the match, with Muta, Sting, and Allin set to team up. Opponents for the three stars are still to be announced.
