Tajiri Says He's Gone From WWE After They Wouldn't Clear Him

Former ECW star Yoshihiro Tajiri announced this weekend that he's ended his latest run with WWE.

"The Japanese Buzzsaw" posted to Twitter that his knee injury has ruled him out for a WWE return. At the age of 46, WWE's doctors didn't feel comfortable clearing him. Tajiri injured the knee at a set of January NXT tapings and never returned to TV.
