This is the 350th installment of the ‘Wrestling with Sin‘ series. A group of stories that delves into the darker, underbelly of pro wrestling.

We simply retell their stories by researching interviews, newspapers, magazines and various other sources of media.

Basically, we will give a subject and the crew must choose our top three (Gold, Silver and Bronze with Gold being the best, silver second best and Bronze the third best) and why we chose each.

From his speed, quickness and agility…to his unique look with face paint…Keiji ‘The Great Muta’ Mutoh quickly became a bonafide star for the NWA/WCW in 1989. So much so, some within the promotion wanted to make Muta the face of the company. It never happened…

So let’s do a little learning shall we?
Grappling with Tragedy is a series of articles that deal with unfortunate, tragic incidents that have occurred throughout the history of professional wrestling. It is unlike the ‘Wrestling with Sin’ series that deals more with the seedier side of wrestling like arrests, murders and suicides.

It has been called both an historic time in New Japan Pro Wrestling history and one of the darkest times in New Japan history.
