    (December 23, 1963- )
    Wrestled for the NWA, NJPW, and WCW
    Former IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Triple Crown Champion, NWA Heavyweight Champion and All-Japan Tag Team Champion
    Currently wrestles for AJPW and serves as president of the promotion
    Best known as The Great Muta
    He wrestled with double personalities; when he wore face paint, he was The Great Muta and when he didn't he was Mutoh.
    He had little regard for his body and as a result he can no longer do the high-flying moves that made him famous.
    He apparently has a fixation with ninjas as his previous ring names include The Black Ninja, The White Ninja and The Super Ninja.
    He was one of NWO Japan's biggest rivals then all of a sudden, for no real reason, he joined the stable.
    His caused a complete uproar between promotions in 2002 when he left NJPW (his promotion of close to 20 years) to leave for its rival promotion AJPW.
    Due to NJPW owning the rights to his ring name, he could no longer use it and wrestled under his real name.
    Many think backstage politics is why he's the president of AJPW.
    Of all the Japanese wrestlers to try to make it in the United States, he has been the most successful.
    He was able to combine Japanese and American styles of wrestling to create his own style and he constantly came up with new moves to stay on top in his promotion.
    Although he was 6'2 and weighed in at 260 for most of his career, he flew around the ring like a luchadore and he's credited for popularizing the moonsault.
    He was a great ring psychologist and he had the ability to carry anybody, even the most helpless of opponents, to great matches.
    While IWGP Heavyweight Champion, he beat Masahiro Chono for the NWA Heavyweight Title, thus unifying the IWGP and NWA World titles and making him the first ever wrestler to hold world heavyweight titles from North America and Japan at the same time.
    He's one of only three wrestlers to hold both the IWGP and Triple Crown titles.
    He's the most consistent wrestler in the history of the PWI 500, never ranking lower than #58 and placing in the top 25 ten times.
    The Tokyo Sports Network named him Wrestler of the Year three times.
    He's in the Wrestling-Observer Hall of Fame.
