Published Add your comment

Hideo Itami hasn't been seen in NXT for months, but that could all be about to change.

The Japanese superstar has been missing from our screens for the extended period because of an innocuous-looking shoulder injury he unfortunately suffered.

The star looked like he could be out for the rest of the year, but according to reports he could return in the next month or so.

According to an article from Wrestling Inc, the man formerly known as KENTA is well ahead of schedule in his comeback from injury. "Based on the original reports, Itami could be back in action this month or some time before the end of the year," their article said.

This is great news for NXT, which has lost so many of its star makes over the past few months.

Adrian Neville has been called up to the main roster and so has another former NXT Champion in Kevin Owens, while Sami Zayn suffered a shoulder injury of his own when answering John Cena's United States open challenge that will keep him out for the year.

That has left Finn Balor to take the throne as top guy in NXT, with Samoa Joe, Tyler Breeze, Baron Corbin and more in that tier below the reigning Champ.
