As previously reported, Hideo Itami requested his release from WWE and will receive it soon. He will have a 90-day no compete clause afterwards and is expected to head back home to Japan. On social media, numerous WWE Superstars have been sending messages to Itami, including WWE Champion “The New” Daniel Bryan, who wrote “No, THANK YOU” and posted a link to a ROH Match between the two of them at Glory By Honor V in 2006.
