WATCH: Hideo Itami Hugs Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka After Last WWE Match

hideo itami wwe release final match hug footage video shinsuke nakamura asuka

Hideo Itami was the focus of 205 Live’s web series this week and footage was shown of the wrestler hugging his peers on the way out of WWE. 

On the latest 205 Life, which was shot between 1/22 and 1/29, Itami talks about some of the things he struggled with during his time in WWE like language and being homesick.

In case you missed, Fightful first reported last week that Hideo had requested his release. So far, WWE has not commented on the matter publicly.  

The video ends with the wrestler embracing Shinsuke Nakamura, Asuka and Arn Anderson following his final match on 205 Live. Others in the gorilla position are clapping. 

Watch the footage below.

    Just a damn shame how they booked Kenta, from the stupid unnecessary name change, to the degrading “respect me” gimmick, and crap like straight up jobbing to a Tyler Breeze “beauty kick”. Hope he makes the most of Vince’s money, and gets his career back on track and stays healthy elsewhere.

    Sorry Faithlocke but Itami just did not fit the WWE style. Plus he was always injured and they signed him a few years too late.

      Sad, but true unfortunately.
