Last week on SmackDown, WWE announced that Rey Mysterio will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. The second inductee of the 2023 Hall of Fame class will be announced on today’s “WWE’s The Bump” by Ric Flair.
ESPN has revealed the next wrestler who will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. It’s none other than legendary Japanese wrestler Great Muta.
“The legendary Japanese wrestler will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, sources confirmed with ESPN on Wednesday. An official announcement is expected later Wednesday on WWE digital series “The Bump” by old Muta rival Ric Flair.”
Great Muta made his pro wrestling debut in the 80s. He had competed in WCW, NJPW, and several independent wrestling promotions. However, the 60-year-old star never wrestled under Vince McMahon’s company but made several appearances in All Elite Wrestling.
The Great Muta wrestled his final match against Tetsuya Naito on February 21st at Keiji Muto Grand Final Pro-Wrestling “Last-Love” event.
