Hideo Itami makes his NXT in-ring debut

Hideo Itami, the man formerly known as Kenta, made his NXT in-ring debut during last night’s NXT show from Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.

Itami took on Justin Gabriel in the second match of the night and pinned Gabriel for his first NXT victory. Itami was then attacked by the former NXT tag team champions The Ascension, continuing their angle which started at NXT Takeover: Fatal 4 Way last week.

With Itami, Sami Zayn, Adrian Neville, and Kevin Steen and Fergal Devitt still yet to make their debut, the WWE future looks very bright!
