Recently, Japanese wrestling promotion Pro Wrestling NOAH announced that WWE superstar Shinsuke Nakamura will be the special opponent for the legendary The Great Muta. This match will be live from the iconic Budokan Hall in Tokyo on January 1, 2023.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio stated that WWE was making certain exceptions to allow former Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura to compete at the event. He stated that Muta was regarded as a legend, and Triple H was okay with Shinsuke Nakamura being one of his last opponents.
“There’s two things it could be. Number one, WWE with the new regime is allowing guys to do it. It will never be a lot of guys but, maybe guys who request, ‘Hey maybe let me do something special outside the [United] States with another company, or you know just something really special.’ They said, ‘Okay, do it.’ Also that Muta, because such a legend and it’s his final matches, and it’s like, ‘Hey I can do one of his last matches.’ Everyone who comes from Triple H’s generation, you know Muta was a legend, and he was a big star before and a legend in Japan. I think, maybe it’s just kinda something that’s real special, and they’ll let him do it. It was still a surprise,” said Meltzer. [H/T: Ringside News]
