Keiji Mutoh is a man that needs little introduction to the vast majority of wrestling fans. Mutoh first became a household name when he came to the U.S, then almost exclusively wrestling as the Great Muta. He ignited the WCW ranks, and brought a style that few, if any, had ever seen at that point, topped off with his mysterious Poison Mist technique, and the ever so spectacular Moonsault. During his time with WCW, he had some great matches against the likes of Sting, Arn Anderson, and Ric Flair. During this time, he was also the IWGP Heavyweight Champion, and in late 1992, he would hold both the IWGP Heavyweight Title and the NWA World Heavyweight Title. He would also have a match against then-WWF Champion Hulk Hogan at the Tokyo Dome. As the years wore on, eventually Mutoh phased out the Muta character, and began wrestling as himself, shaving his head and growing out a goatee, becoming what many know as his "Shining Wizard" persona. He innovated the Shining Wizard in 2001, and since then, it's put down some big names, from Toshiaki Kawada, Genichiro Tenryu, and Kensuke Sasaki. The Great Muta character has also returned, just as demonic as before. Mutoh's style is incredibly well rounded. His style as Mutoh is best described as elegant, intelligent, and focused, while Muta brings savagery and brute force to bring his opponents to his knees. The Poison Mist can do some significant damage, and the Moonsault and Shining Wizard will finish just about any opponent in his way.
