A nice gesture and thank you to Hideo Itami from the 205 Live roster.
It was reported by Fightful's own Sean Ross Sapp on January 29th following SmackDown Live that former 3-time GHC Junior Heavyweight Champion Hideo Itami asked for his release from WWE and was granted the release. Itami was immediately shown tons of love from his fellow WWE roster members such as Buddy Murphy, Ariya Daivari, Shinsuke Nakamura, Asuka, Peyton Royce, Cedric Alexander and others.
Members of the 205 Live roster have been documenting their journeys on the road together and the latest video that they put together was about Hideo's last week in the WWE. The video has clips from January 22nd through Itami's last day in the company on January 29th and the end of the video sees Hideo walking back to gorilla position and being given a standing ovation from those in the back and receiving a hug and thank you from WWE Hall Of Famer Arn Anderson.
Fightful has a video news update about Hideo's departure from WWE and to view that, head over to the Fightful Pro Wrestling YouTube channel.
