As part of the promotion of the upcoming WWE tour to Japan at beginning of July, Hideo Itami returned to the land of the rising sun. Yesterday, May 28, he appeared at the J Sports studios, the TV channel responsible for the transmission of WWE events in that country.
In various interviews that the Japanese superstar, formerly known as KENTA, took part in, he spoke of what that has been like in NXT (though a shoulder injury will keep him out of action for at least 6 months), the thrill of being in a watch at Wrestlemania 31 and the great honour of being witness to the Japanese legend Tatsumi Fujinami, being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
He spoke about how he is adjusting to living in America, where he highlights that his greatest difficulties lie in the language, although he has had great progress. He was also pleased that the public fully identify his name in the ring. Finally he emphasized in that IF he will take part in the WWE tour in July at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, his participation will be limited to being like special guest because of his injury.
By the time WWE come back to Tokyo, it would have been one year ago, at the WWE live show in Osaka, Itami publicly signed a contract with the biggest company of entertainment on a global scale, having Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Hart as witnesses.
