Keiji Mutoh Signs Two-Year Deal With Pro Wrestling NOAH
Keiji Mutoh is sticking with Pro Wrestling NOAH for two more years, and DDT Pro also locked down another Japanese wrestling legend.
Announced at a press conference on Monday morning, Keiji Mutoh has signed a new two-year contract with Pro Wrestling NOAH.
Mutoh won the GHC Heavyweight Championship at NOAH Destination 2021: Back To Budokan on February 12, making him just the third man in history to win Japan’s top three (NJPW’s IWGP Heavyweight Championship, AJPW’s Triple Crown Heavyweight Championship) championships.
The new contract with CyberAgent (parent owner of both NOAH and DDT Pro) signifies that Mutoh will continue as an active wrestler until he is 60 years old. He will defend the GHC Championship against Kaito Kiyomiya on March 14 at Great Voyage in Fukuoka.
In addition to Mutoh’s contract, it was also confirmed that Jun Akiyama, 51, had joined DDT Pro as a full-time wrestler under a one-year deal.
