NXT Superstar Hideo Itami recently returned to action from a shoulder injury that kept him out of the ring for over a year. ProWrestlingSheets is now reporting that the former GHC Heavyweight Champion is injured once again. This time the injury occured when Itami took a botched Powerslam from Riddick Moss during the main event of the October 1st NXT Live Event where Itami was teaming with NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura against Tino Sabatelli and Riddick Moss.
ProWrestlingSheets is also reporting that there is currently no timetable for a return but it is looking unlikely that he will be able to form his highly publicized team with Kota Ibushi for NXT's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament.
Here is fan recorded footage of the accident, be warned this may be uncomfortable to watch:
