Hideo Itami is not intimidated by Gentleman Jack Gallagher’s threats

Gentleman Jack Gallagher’s animosity for Hideo Itami intensified on Christmas Day when The Brian Kendrick suffered a broken nose and fractured orbital bone following a devastating Go to Sleep from Itami. Despite losing to the Japanese Superstar the following night on WWE 205 Live, Gallagher sought retribution last week by attacking his nemesis with a steel pipe.

On the latest episode of WWE 205 Live, Gallagher made his way to the ring and explained his loathing of Itami and his desire to avenge his mentor, The Brain Kendrick. Thinking Itami was nursing his wounds, Gallagher told the WWE Unvierse his machinations to ruin Itami’s life. That prompted the Japanese Superstar to make his way to the ring and confront Gallagher.

Determined to make Gallagher respect him, Itami unleashed his rage – even countering an attack from Gallagher’s trusty umbrella. Before Itami could use the umbrella against its owner, the British Superstar retreated from the ring and escaped through the WWE Universe.

Gentleman Jack Gallagher attacked Hideo Itami

After being defeated by Hideo Itami on the final WWE 205 Live of 2017, Gentleman Jack Gallagher demanded a rematch against The Japanese Superstar in an effort to avenge the injury his compatriot, The Brian Kendrick, suffered at the hands of Itami on Raw. The Man with a Plan suffered a fractured nose and orbital bone following a devastating Go To Sleep from Itami, and is sidelined for two months.

Gallagher’s brand of cruelty was quelled last week on WWE 205 Live, but he wasn’t going to make the same mistake twice. Attempting to attack Itami with his umbrella before the opening bell, The Japanese Superstar fought back and left Gallagher reeling. However, the British Superstar managed to retrieve William the Third and successfully level a charging Itami. Falling from the umbrella was a lead pipe, which Gallagher happily picked up and continued his attack until he was separated by officials coming to Itami’s aid.

Although Gallagher came up short in singles competition last week, he certainly showed Itami the punishment that comes with crossing Gallagher and Kendrick.

Hideo Itami def. Gentleman Jack Gallagher

On Raw, Hideo Itami defeated former WWE Cruiserweight Champion The Brian Kendrick in a bout that resulted in The Man with a Plan suffering a fractured nose and orbital bone following Itami’s patented Go to Sleep. As a result, Gentleman Jack Gallagher was determined to display his own cruelty and avenge his ally’s defeat and injury by unleashing punishment on the Japanese Superstar.

Showing no fear stepping inside the ring with Itami, Gallagher hoped to rely on his unorthodox style to dominate his opponent. Unfortunately for Gallagher, Itami answered a slap in the face with one of his own before unleashing a flurry of strikes and demanding The British Superstar respect him. Unable to mount an effective offense, Gallagher used the ring apron to trip his opponent and take control of the contest.

Using his technical prowess, Gallagher gained the advantage, taunting the WWE Universe in Chicago as he dished out punishment to Itami. However, the Japanese Superstar managed to recover, once again swinging momentum into his favor with high-impact strikes. Despite Itami regaining the edge in the contest, Gallagher showed off his own resilience, applying The Brian Kendrick’s Captain’s Hook and nearly making Itami tap out.

Unfortunately for Gallagher, the flurry was short-lived, as Itami struck back and locked in the Rings of Saturn for the tapout victory.

Hideo Itami def. The Brian Kendrick

205 Live and Monday Night Raw got their first dose of Hideo Itami last week, and the message was loud and clear: Be very afraid. But The Brian Kendrick, who has always fancied himself smarter than the average bear, decided to see if Itami really belonged. The short answer was yes, and painfully so, as Itami came out swinging — or kicking, rather — in his Raw singles debut.

The Man With a Plan was well on his way to being brutalized until Gentleman Jack Gallagher distracted Itami and gave the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion a chance to brawl his way back into the fight. Yet Itami, psyching himself up periodically by screaming “Show me respect,” grinded his way through Kendrick’s offense, peppering him with body shots before finally dropping him with a Go to Sleep that nearly turned Kendrick’s face to mush.

Hideo Itami def. Colin Delaney

On Raw, Hideo Itami came to the aid of his longtime friend and ally Finn Bálor, teaming up with the first-ever Universal Champion against The Miztourage. Itami and Bálor’s victory only built the excitement for the Japanese Superstar’s debut in the Cruiserweight division.

Making his highly-anticipated debut on WWE 205 Live, Itami squared off with Colin Delaney and quickly showed the WWE Universe his speed, power and unbridled intensity with a flurry of kicks and high-impact strikes. Demanding that he be respected as he dismantled Delaney and picked up the victory with his patented Go to Sleep, Itami certainly proved he is a force to be reckoned with and can potentially change the landscape of the Cruiserweight division.

Finn Bálor & Hideo Itami def. The Miztourage

Three years ago, Finn Bálor made his very first NXT appearance as Hideo Itami’s partner against The Ascension. This week, the first-ever Universal Champion returned the favor. After The Miztourage ganged up on Bálor during their Handicap Match began (technically earning Finn a disqualification win for that contest), Itami arrived to even the odds, and Bálor demanded the bout be re-started as a tag team contest with the strong-style legend at his side.

The two hadn’t lost a step. The Miztourage wisely kept to their original game plan and isolated Finn while Itami prowled on the apron, but once Bálor reached the Japanese brawler, the match wrapped up in a hurry. Given that Itami had been scheduled to debut as a Cruiserweight on tomorrow’s 205 Live, Curtis Axel was utterly unprepared to answer the array of kicks and fists that brought him to his knees in short order. An assist from Bálor disposed of Bo Dallas, and Axel met his fate at the hands of a ruthless Go to Sleep — a sight that’s likely to lead to a sleepless night for the Superstars of 205 Live.

Kassius Ohno def. Hideo Itami

Kassius Ohno took full advantage of the No Disqualification stipulation that he requested when he KO’ed Hideo Itami following a brutal low blow.

The hit below the waist was fitting retribution after Itami used the same tactic in their previous encounter before unleashing a vicious post-match assault on Ohno.

The two foes fought inside and outside the ring in a heated contest before Ohno appeared ready to hit his Rolling Elbow. Itami, though, tried again to nail his opponent in the nether regions, but this time, Ohno blocked it. The wily Itami instead poked Ohno’s eyes before setting him up for the GTS.

A determined Ohno escaped the move, however, and hit a forceful low blow on Itami before ending the contest with his Rolling Elbow.

Aleister Black def. Hideo Itami

Hideo Itami is the latest NXT Superstar to Fade to Black after falling to the devastating Aleister Black’s Black Mass kick to the face.

This highly-anticipated showdown involving two of the hardest kickers in the world of wrestling didn’t disappoint as both Superstars wowed the NXT Universe with a barrage of strikes that reverberated throughout Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

This clash was not for the faint of heart as Black’s face would attest. Itami had Black grounded and busted open early on as he appeared ready to hand Black his first NXT loss.

This brutal bout would test both Superstars’ resiliency as they unloaded one devastating maneuver after another. Itami had Black on his heels, but his boisterous demands for respect and taunts would ultimately prove costly. As Itami charged, Black ducked out of the way before delivering a jaw-rattling Black Mass for the win.

This epic clash could end up proving to be a pivotal turning point for both Black and Itami who seem headed in opposite directions. For the extremely talented and highly-acclaimed Itami, will the Japanese Superstar be able to rebound from his latest high-profile loss?

Meanwhile, for Black, he picks up another decisive victory to continue his imposing undefeated streak as the number of Superstars left in NXT for Black to defeat is dwindling.

Aleister Black grows more battle-tested by the week. In the latest example, the Dutch destroyer narrowly overcame NXT newcomer Kyle O’Reilly, a world-famous combatant whose unannounced arrival sent Full Sail University into a frenzy.

But before their epic encounter got underway, Black had another Superstar to deal with: Hideo Itami. Itami had commandeered the ring to decry what he believed to be a lack of respect toward him. As Black entered the ring for his scheduled match, Itami initially conceded the squared circle but then tried to jump Black from behind, only to be laid out with Black Mass.

Kassius Ohno def. Hideo Itami by Disqualification

It looks as though Hideo Itami finally put the finishing touches on his floundering friendship with Kassius Ohno as he decimated NXT’s resident Knockout Artist with a vicious post-match assault mere moments after embarrassing him with a low blow.

Itami and Ohno’s alliance was clearly on shaky ground from the start, but the Japanese Superstar’s actions Wednesday night on NXT have blown up the foundation that was their friendship.

Both heralded strikers let out their frustrations with one another in the form of a barrage of hard-hitting kicks that had the NXT Universe split down the middle on who they wanted to prevail.

Just as Ohno set up Itami for his Rolling Elbow finisher, Itami responded with a kick below the belt that floored his opponent.

Itami proceeded to add insult to injury, continuing to levy a relentless attack against his former friend. After hitting not one, but two GTS’ on Ohno, Itami began to walk up the ramp.

Deciding he wasn’t finished with the jersey-clad Ohno, Itami then went back to the ring to drop Ohno face-first on the unforgiving steel steps, finally ending the unforgiving assault.
