Hideo Itami admitted on Twitter that since coming to the WWE, he hasn’t lived up to expectations. Itami suffered a few setbacks when his career with WWE started due to injuries. He was out for over a year before returning in June of 2016, only to suffer another injury in October. He hopes at NXT Takeover: Chicago on Saturday that he is able to showcase fans what he can do.
Since I've come to WWE. I haven't lived up to my expectations. But finally I will have the opportunity to show, WHO I AM.
Get ready #G2S
