In a recent interview with Weekly Pro Wrestling, Kota Ibushi shared some details on his recovery after injuring his shoulder in 2021’s G1 Climax finals.

You can read a highlight from the interview with Ibushi below.

On his recovery progress and current status: “There is absolutely no problem in moving normally. I am passive in training, and there is absolutely no problem in rope work. I think I have recovered about 90 percent. I don’t have a problem with playing matches.”
