Although he is slated to have his final match on February 21st at the Tokyo Dome against NJPW’s Naito, Keiji Muto is in rough shape.

Tokyo Sports is reporting that Muto (The Great Muta) has hamstring tears in both of his legs.

Muto suffered the leg injuries during The Great Muta Final Bye-Bye event. There, he teamed with Sting and Darby Allin against Akira, Hakushi and Naomichi Marufuji.

“I’m going to have a good match but I had a match 10 days ago and tore a muscle in my thigh. I’m in a pinch but I’ll do my best ,” he told Tokyo Sports at the K-1 Awards where he was a presenter.

Later, Muto commented further and was less hopeful: “Both my hamstrings (thighs) are torn. I had a CT scan, too. Luckily, I didn’t ‘t have a tear but it hurts anyway. It’s been 10 days since the injury but it hasn’t healed at all. Furthermore, on this day, all movement other than on the stage was by wheelchair. To shoot the scene where Kaito Kiyomiya, the GHC Heavyweight Champion, who was also a presenter, pushed me in a wheelchair.”

Muto also admitted he has been suffering from back issues too.

“Actually, I wasn’t feeling well before I went that day. I had a backache. I don’t know what triggered it but I was out of shape,” he told Tokyo Sports.

Muto commented that he is not even sure he will be able to make his final match in 19 days.

“Will I make it in time for the retirement match? I don’t know. I feel like I’ve been given a trial by the gods of professional wrestling. I don’t know what to do. I only train my upper body but it’s really hard to do. I’m so stressed,” he said.
