Japanese wrestling legend The Great Muta is reportedly in talks with a “famous American promotion” in order to trade talent with his new wrestling promotion in Tokyo, Wrestle-1. He recently left All-Japan Pro Wrestling and took much of the roster with him to start Wrestle-1. The promotion launched on July 10.
Muta (real name Keiji Mutoh) said the following in an interview with Tokyo Sports (translated rougly into English): “…a famous promotion overseas asked me to partner. I will be going there to talk.”
It’s likely that Mutoh is going to be meeting with Dixie Carter and TNA to trade talent. TNA currently has partnerships all over the world, including AAA in Mexico. There were previously talks with TNA and the former All-Japan President in 2007 that did not come to fruition.
