The 205 Life series is continuing on social media ahead of the Royal Rumble, where four Superstars from the Cruiserweight-based show will compete for the title, which is currently around the waist of “The Juggernaut” Buddy Murphy.
During the most recent episode of 205 Life, which went up on Ariya Daivari’s Twitter account, Daivari filmed WWE Champion Daniel Bryan. Bryan talked about how dangerous Hideo Itami is.
Bryan goes back in time to his days in ROH, revealing that he and Itami had faced off in a match that left him with a ruptured eardrum in his left ear. He still feels the ramifications today, as he can’t go in the water due to the injury.
He had the following to say:
“Hideo Itami… Is Hideo Itami dangerous? Well, I can’t hear out of my left ear. You see, Hideo Itami and I were fighting in Ring of Honor in 2006- and we got into a battle of strikes. A battle that I lost. A battle that ruptured my eardrum, and shortly thereafter not only could I not hear out of my left ear- I can’t even go underwater. So is Hideo Itami dangerous? Yes, he’s dangerous. And if I ever see Hideo Itami on SmackDown, he’s gonna get what’s coming to him.”
