Word spread quickly about the departure of Hideo Itami from the WWE as several superstars have reacted to the news. This comes after it was reported that Itami asked and received his WWE release.
The latest update on the status of the 205 Live star is that he said his goodbyes to everyone after WWE had wrapped up airing this week’s episode of 205 Live in Phoenix, AZ at the Talking Stick Resort Arena on the WWE Network as that as his final scheduled night on the road with WWE.
