Mutoh's trainer was the great Hiro Matsuda, who was a major influence in Mutoh's early development.
Mutoh was impressive enough that he was soon noticed by Jim Crockett, who was promoting the NWA (which would soon be known as WCW).
Mutoh healed up quickly though, and on July 20th he and Masa Chono would take a trip to America to defeat Disco Inferno and Alex Wright on an edition of WCW Monday Night Nitro.

 Keiji Mutoh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Keiji Mutoh (武藤敬司 Mutō Keiji born December 23, 1962) is a Japanese professional wrestler who gained international fame in the National Wrestling Alliance.
Mutoh was trained to be a professional wrestler by Hiro Matsuda in the New Japan Pro Wrestling Academy.
Despite his return, Mutoh was plagued by this nagging injury, fighting through his pains throughout the rest of 1998 and much of 1999--even winning his third IWGP title from one of Chono's right-hand men, Scott Norton.

Mutoh then returned to North America and WCW for some months, working matches against/with Sting, then returned back to Japan in 1992, and officially became the biggest draw in the business at the time downing legend Riki Choshu for the IWGP World Heavyweight title on 11/8/92 and ending on 20/9/93.

 Shining Wizard Forums - My journalist Column on Keiji Mutoh
Keiji Mutoh was born on December 23rd 1962 in the Yamanashi prefecture, Fuji yoshida City, Japan.
Mutoh was, needless to say, unhappy that his first pro-wrestling run was so fruitless so he left Japan momentarily and began working for the World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico under the Super Ninja alias.
Mutoh was able to unify the IWGP and UWIF world titles by defeating Nobuhiko Takada in May of 95.

In 2001, Keiji Mutoh won All Japan Pro Wrestling's Triple Crown with an intense victory over Genichiro Tenryu, a match hailed by puroresu fans as one of the best of the year.
From his dramatic appearance change to his moveset update to his offensive stat boost which puts him in the elusive FPZ 200 Club, Keiji Mutoh is not the same wrestler he was in FPD.
Your bread and butter as far as Mutoh grapples are concerned should be the Low Dropkick, the High Speed Dragon Screw, and of course, the Shining Wizard.

Mutoh is as respected as they come in Japan, earning a spot in the top 25 of the PWI 500 for the majority of his career.
Because Mutoh was working for New Japan Pro Wrestling at the time, this was seen as a major coup.
With Mutoh's popularity at perhaps an all-time high, All Japan would lure Mutoh away from rival New Japan just months later, making him a permanent part of their roster.

 Hey Snitsky and others who follow puro - Bodybuilding.com Forums
Fact is, Keiji Mutoh as Great Muta was never as far a worker and he'd regressed a great deal.
He'd wrestle more scientifically as Keiji Mutoh, and then as Great Muta he'd be more of a brawler and use foreign objects.
So I guess we're just totally neglecting 1989 when Mutoh as Muta was the hottest thing to hit the states probably ever and was so over even as a heel that had he stayed after Flair turned on Sting he would have been the biggest babyface WCW had seen in years.
