Renee Young officially announced that Hideo Itami would be out of the triple threat match at tonight’s NXT TakeOver show. They shot an angle today where they showed Itami in the parking lot holding his shoulder. That is the storyline explanation but, as most of you know by now, Itami has had shoulder issues and the word as of a week ago was that he would be out of the match. The match will now be a singles match between Tyler Breeze and Finn Balor.
They did not show who attacked Itami but Kevin Owens walked by afterwards so the hint is that he may have had something to do with the attack.
