There has been speculation online that Hideo Itami may be done with WWE after he took to Twitter and simply wrote, “It’s Over,” following his loss to Roderick Strong on Tuesday’s episode of 205 Live in the first round of the Cruiserweight title tournament.

We reported back in November that Itami was interested in going back to Japan once his contract with WWE ran up, although WWE has been pushing him as a top star on the 205 Live brand. While it’s very possible this could be an indication that he is leaving the company, it’s also very possible that he was only referring to his loss in the tournament and this could be storyline related.
We will keep you updated if we hear anything else regarding Itami’s status.
