GREAT MUTA VOL 4 "CHANGING INTO NWO MUTA" (The last in the series of New Japan-produced compilations covering the career of The Great Muta. Not quite as good as the others in the series, but still some fun stuff to be seen here. VQ is EX.)
Great Muta vs Shiro Koshinaka, 2/16/97 Great Muta vs Lord Steven Regal, 8/3/97 Great Muta vs Naoya Ogawa, 8/10/97 Great Muta vs Tadao Yasuda, 10/13/97 Great Muta & Masa Chono vs Kazuo Yamazaki & Kensuke Sasaki, 10/23/97 (Fun angle as Muta teases turning against Chono after he & Chono have a "miscommunication". Muta walks out, leaving Chono by himself, but then returns as Keiji Mutoh! The fans pop, expecting Muta/Mutoh to turn on Chono, but he doesn't and ends up helping his team win. Great stuff.) Great Muta & Great Kabuki vs Michiyoshi Ohara & Tatsutoshi Gotoh, 8/8/98 (Kinda cool, Kabuki and Muta wear each other's costumes into the ring - masks and all - fooling the fans.)
