Katsuyori Shibata (born November 17, 1979) is a Japanese professional wrestler and mixed martial arts fighter. In professional wrestling, he is known for his hard hitting offense and his realistic bouts.

Professional wrestling career Edit

Shibata was an amateur wrestler during his school days and was competing at national level in 1997. His pro debut was October 10, 1999 facing close friend Wataru Inoue on New Japan Pro Wrestling. He and Wataru worked their way up the junior ranks together, though Shibata was a slight step ahead of Inoue throughout their joint rise, and subsequently challenged for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title first.

In 2005, Shibata left New Japan, becoming a free lancer and has most notably fought for Pro Wrestling Noah. One of his more famous matches was a heated confrontation with former amateur wrestler Jun Akiyama.
