“The Japanese Buzzsaw” may have just recently returned to TV … but WWE announced Tuesday that Tajiri is not cleared to compete after suffering an injury at an NXT taping.
WWE.com reports that Tajiri suffered a right knee injury at the television taping, but didn’t offer up any further details on what may have been the cause.
The wrestler returned to WWE this month after an impressive showing in the Cruiserweight Classic and, according to CageMatch.com, he last wrestled in a dark tag match that pitted he and Shinsuke Nakamura against Bobby Roode and Samoa Joe on January 5th.
A timetable for his return was not given.
