From NJPW:

Katsuyori Shibata will be in attendance next Wednesday, December 15 at the Best of the Super Jr./World Tag League finals.

Shibata has expressed he has a major announcement that he would like to deliver directly to the fans.

At the G1 Climax 31 Finals, fans got a big surprise as Katsuyori Shibata returned to competition. Shibata battled Zack Sabre Jr in a five-minute exhibition that ended in a draw. After the exhibition, Shibata promised that the next match would be for real before taking a back bump.

Shibata hasn't wrestled an official match since April 2017 due to a subdural hematoma. He was involved in an angle with KENTA in 2019, but a match never came to fruition. He helps train the young lions at the NJPW LA Dojo.
