New Japan star Katsuyori Shibata took to the internet and his "Real Talk" blog to update his health status.

He stated that even before this latest injury, he has been seeing double since the beginning of his career. He stated that he's had surgery on his eyes on three separate occasion over the years.

In regards to his current situation, he stated that the treatments are a "heavy burden to his body" because it involves sending currents (presumably electrical) to the injured parts of his body (which is his skull/brain).

He stated "there is no precedent" for his current treatment and that there are only a few machines that do this treatment in the country.

He said he gets desperate when he thinks about his condition and that his best hope at this point is to be able to have clearer vision than he does now.

Obviously, this is a very depressing statement by Shibata. On behalf of everyone at PWInsider, we wish him the best in his recovery.
