‘The Wrestler’ Katsuyori Shibata made his emotional return to NJPW at today’s G1 Climax finals. He appeared halfway through the show to greet the crowd and stated “I’m alive! That’s all!” Shibata suffered from a subdural hematoma during his last bout with Kazuchika Okada earlier this year and it was reported that we would likely never enter the squared circle to compete again.
Shibata was visibly moved by the crowd’s response to his return, check the video below and let us know what you think in the comments.
