Former WWE star makes appearance at NJPW Dominion

Former WWE star KENTA aka Hideo Itami is in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).

On Sunday at the NJPW Dominion in Osaka, Japan, Katsuyori Shibata appeared to introduce KENTA, who showed up in a Takeover shirt. He would cut a promo about how he wants to show fans “KENTA’s professional wrestling” and then entered the G1 Climax tournament.

This comes after it was reported that Itami asked and received his WWE release in February. At the time of his departure, it was believed that Itami was looking to return home to Japan and potentially back to Pro Wrestling Noah where he previously worked.

KENTA has never regularly wrestled for New Japan Pro Wrestling as he graduated from All Japan Pro Wrestling’s dojo in 2000 and then moved to Pro Wrestling Noah until he signed with WWE in 2014.
