According to Wrestlinginc, NXT star Hideo Itami made his return after five months. Here is what they reported;
‘Hideo Itami made his WWE NXT return at tonight’s NXT live event in Orlando, Florida and delivered a GTS to Riddick Moss.
Itami has been out of action since suffering a neck injury after a botched powerslam from Moss at an NXT live event in Largo, FL last October. He had only returned months earlier after being on the shelf for over a year after sustaining a shoulder injury in May of 2015.’
Hideo Itami who was earlier known as Kenta signed for WWE in 2014. He was given a try in the NXT and he was doing pretty cool.
However, in May 2015, he picked up a major shoulder injury which could have sidelined him from action for over six months. The Japanese professional wrestler returned to action a little early, and he got injured again. On a house show of NXT in October 2015, he had a match with Riddick Moss where Moss botched a power slam on him and Hideo Itami got injured again.
Since February Itami has been teasing his return, and now he finally made his return. There were even speculations that Itami might make his return in the Royal Rumble match as a surprise entrant.
Itami is a great talent, a former kickboxer and a famous professional wrestler were doing a decent job in the NXT before he got sidelined from action by back to back injuries. He had an excellent record of achievements in wrestling with being ranked #22 by Pro Wrestling Illustrated in PWI 500. He also had a bag full of mouth licking achievements. We are hoping to see the best of the man in future, and we are seriously hoping not to see him getting injured again.
