Could Hideo Itami be looking to make Enzo Amore Go To Sleep?

WWE's main roster has been plagued by a handful of NXT call-ups as of late, with returning star Paige bringing Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville to Monday Nights, and Ruby Riot, Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan making an impact on Smackdown Live.

It seems another NXT star is set to make his main roster debut, as Nigel McGuinness announced on 205 Live that Hideo Itami would be joining the cruiserweights soon.

The former Kenta was seen as a huge signing for WWE back in 2014, bringing a ton of fan fair with him when he appeared at NXT Takeover:Fatal 4 Way, attacking the Ascension. Itami would go on to have a solid run before a plague of injuries would keep him out of action for about two years. After his return, he had a handful of high profile matches against the likes of Bobby Roode, Kassius Ohno and Aleister Black.

With Itami making his way to 205 Live, it seems that Enzo Amore's time on top may be at an end. The high impact striker will look to make quick work of any opponent who steps in his way. The Japenese wrestler -- who created the Go to Sleep (GTS) is regarded as a legend in his home country and we can only hope WWE treats him like one.
