NJPW Champion Making ROH Debut at Death Before Dishonor XIV

Katsuyori Shibata has been booked to appear at Ring of Honor’s Death Before Dishonor pay per view on August 20th. Shibata is also scheduled to make his UK debut at Revolution Pro Wrestling this Sunday at York Hall in London against Zack Sabre Jr.

There has been speculation that 2016 could finally be the year that Shibata wins the prestigious NJPW G1 Climax tournament. Shibata does appear to have regained the trust of New Japan after leaving to pursue MMA in the mid-2000s and these international bouts could be setting the stage for a major IWGP title push in the near future.
