What's the story?

Much to everyone's shock, WWE decided to release not one but three superstars in total as they future endeavored Tye Dillinger, TJP, and Hideo Itami from the company.

Despite having announced his departure prior, Itami's release did come in as a big shock to everyone judging by the timing of his release. The former NOAH star has now finally broken his silence on social media regarding his departure from the company.


In case you didn't know...

Hideo Itami made a huge name for himself after having established himself as one of Japan's top dogs following his performances under the Pro Wrestling NOAH banner. As a former GHC Heavyweight Champion, Itami, also known as Kenta, shared the ring with some of Pro Wrestling's most elite stars both in Japan and in the US as part of ROH.

Itami eventually signed for the WWE in 2015 and had a solid start to his NXT career and was a part of the 205 Live brand. However, due to multiple untimely injuries, he never really got the big push from company officials, and as of today was let go off from the WWE.


The heart of the matter

After having reportedly asked for his release, which was eventually granted to him, WWE finally came to terms with former GHC Heavyweight Champion, Hideo Itami, as the former NOAH star was let go from the company with two other top stars in Tye Dillinger and TJP.

Itami has now finally broken his silence about his release on social media, as he took to Twitter and thanked the WWE for his time and interestingly enough, also stated a message which read "see you soon".

What's next?

With Hideo Itami now on his way out of the WWE, it is pretty likely that he will head back to his homeland of Japan where he is expected to make his return under Pro Wrestling NOAH.

However, with All Elite Wrestling signing some of the best talents in the world, could Cody and The Bucks make Itami aka Kenta their top priority signing? Only time will tell.
