WON: Shibata still wanting to wrestle, despite doctors saying otherwise

Even though doctors have said that they donít believe Katsuyori Shibata can ever be cleared, those close to Shibata have told us that Shibata is not accepting that answer and is determined and is training for a comeback.
As much as I want The Wrestler back in the ring, if a doctor says he can't do it, then he fucking shouldn't do it.

As sad as it is for Shibata, I don't ever see him having a Daniel Bryan like come back, as hard as he may try.

Don't need another Misawa moment. Fuck that. Hopefully he never wrestles again

No, just no. This isn't like with DB where every doctor but one would clear him because of a concussion. Shibata had a subdural hematoma with partial paralysis. No doctor worth a damn would ever clear him after that. He's lucky to even be alive.

In the past medical staff might have looked the other way but with all the new research available regarding head injury if the Doctors say he has to wait that he has to wait.

Shibata is my favorite wrestler, and his retirement was one of the hardest things I had to endure during my tenure as a wretling fan, but I don't want anything even more tragic to happen. I don't know what's the situation, but it's not hard for me to believe Shibata would disregard the doctors. I'm hoping he thinks real real hard about this one.

I would adore him back if he could do it, but all signs point to that being a bad idea. I love the guy, but I don't need him coming back if there's any sort of risk for something life threatening to happen again.

I think his role in the company is great as is.

With more info being out than there was 18 months ago, there's definitely no point risking it. I imagine the Dojo pay isn't very lucrative and he's been placed in California rather than Japan which might isolate him so he'll always have that itch to return. So hopefully New Japan management finds him something that'll keep him happy in a suit or tracksuit.

Good for him. If he thinks he can do it, go for it.

Re: WON: Shibata still wanting to wrestle, despite doctors saying otherwise

Speaking of, is it worth bringing up Katsuya Kitamura?

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

It should be 100% standard across pro wrestling.
