During Tuesday night’s edition of 205 Live in Houston, Hideo Itami was announced as “coming soon” to the show to be part of the company’s Cruiserweight Division.
After spending a lengthy career in Japan wrestling for Pro Wrestling NOAH, Itami agreed to terms on a deal with WWE back in 2014 and was brought in to NXT.
He would battle a series of injuries over the last three years while in NXT. Itami had recently been feuding with Kassius Ohno in NXT and wasn’t featured on the last set of TV tapings after losing a No DQ match to Ohno a few weeks ago.
