205 Live star Ariya Daivari is currently campaigning for Hideo Itami to become the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion. Itami will face Buddy Murphy, Akira Tozawa and Kalisto in a Fatal 4 Way match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship this Sunday at the Royal Rumble.
Daivari tweeted a video of WWE Champion Daniel Bryan describing just how dangerous Hideo Itami is. Nearly 13 years after they battled each other in Ring of Honor, Bryan says he is still feeling the effects of Itami’s brutality.
“Hideo Itami. Is Hideo Itami dangerous? Well, I can’t hear out of my left ear,” Bryan stated. “You see, Hideo Itami and I were fighting in Ring of Honor in 2006, and we got into a battle of strikes, a battle that I lost. A battle that ruptured my ear drum, and shortly thereafter, not only could I not hear out of my left ear, I can’t even go underwater.”
Bryan continued, “So, is Hideo Itami dangerous? Yes, he’s dangerous, and if I ever see Hideo Itami on SmackDown, he’s going to get all that’s coming to him.”
205 Live’s Mustafa Ali recently moved up to Smackdown Live. Whilst this doesn’t set a precedent there could be a good chance that we see more Cruiserweight talent move further up to the ‘main’ roster. Getting the opportunity to see Bryan take on Itami could be extremely exciting, especially as both had such a historic rivalry in ROH.
