The Great Muta made a major error of judgment when he used a gay slur after he took on Shinsuke Nakamura in a gripping contest at Pro Wrestling NOAH’s The New Year event last night. The latter picked up the win after sucking Muta’s green mist from his mouth and spitting it right back at the legend’s face, helping him hit the Kinshasa and get the three count.

However, what happened after the bout is what caught the attention of most fans, as Grear Muta used a gay slur to refer to Nakamura. The retiring veteran was speaking at a post-match press conference when he said:

“He’s good. Shinsuke. Good. But maybe he’s queer. He’s f****t maybe. Bye bye, Shinsuke.”

The video was also posted to NOAH’s English and Japanese Twitter handles and its YouTube account, though the text of the posts omit the “queer” and slur references. This has led to a few disgruntled fans calling out Muta, and it remains to be seen how he and the company react to this issue. Nakamura has also not commented on the same so far.
