Just a few months after being dropped on his neck, it looks like WWE’s Hideo Itami is finally cleared to return to the ring.
Per Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Itami is clear to return after the injury that originally sidelined him back in October. Itami was dropped awkwardly on his head and neck on a botched powerslam by NXT wrestler Riddick Moss, but the injury wasn’t as bad as it looked and Itami only had to spend a few months out.
Itami originally joined WWE back in 2014, and his career with the company has been injury-plagued. Itami has already missed 14 months of his career to a shoulder injury, and the setback with his neck came just after Itami had originally returned to WWE after that injury.
