Katsuyori Shibata: “I will have a match on January 4″
Katsuyori Shibata confirmed he will have a match at Wrestle Kingdom 16 on January 4.
It will mark his formal return from a years-long retirement due to injury. Shibata’s opponent was not revealed as part of the announcement.
Shibata made his intentions known in the ring during New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Best Of The Super Jr. & World Tag League finals on Wednesday. His announcement was characteristically brief.
“I will have a match on January 4,” Shibata said. “That’s it.”
