At the 2021 G1 Climax final, Shibata competed in a Grappling match against Zack Sabre Jr. that went to a time limit draw. It was Shibata’s first sanctioned match since April of 2017 when he suffered a hematoma while wrestling Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Title.
Back in October, Shibata told Tokyo Sports that his desire to return full-time has only grown stronger since the exhibition.
