It was confirmed on tonight’s WWE 205 Live episode that the next call-up from WWE NXT will see Hideo Itami join the cruiserweight division.
Itami’s NXT run has been plagued by injuries. He’s lost a handful of singles matches since returning to the ring back in March of this year. His last big match came at NXT “Takeover: Brooklyn III” in August, a loss to Aleister Black.
Below is the graphic teasing his upcoming arrival and Twitter comments from Itami:
