Thanks to his early '90s WCW matches with Sting, Lex Luger and Ric Flair, the deranged Keiji Mutoh became one of the first Japanese wrestlers to gain enormous notoriety, and a huge fanbase, outside of Japan. Back on his home soil however, Mutoh is one of the most popular wrestlers of all time, known for his brutal submissions, amazing acrobatics and his notorious green mist. Muta (as he's known stateside) also holds the record for the most blood shed in a single match , after facing Hiroshi Hase in 1992 and "blading" to such a degree that it gave the trailer to The Shining a run for its money.
