Katsuyori Shibata made his first appearance since sustaining a subdural hematoma earlier this year. While Shibata’s future as a wrestler is very much in the air still, he left the crowd with a simple message … saying, “I’m alive. That’s all.”

Later in the show, after the IWGP Tag Team Championship match, the Killer Elite Squad returned by ambushing War Machine and Guerrillas of Destiny. The tag team had been sidelined since February after Lance Archer suffered a herniated disc that required surgery.

Finally, the penultimate match of the evening saw the beloved Daryl Takahashi return from the dead. Daryl was brutally torn to shreds earlier in the G1 by Bad Luck Fale, but appears to be on the mend as he was sporting a cast while accompanying Hiromu Takahashi to the ring.
