ECW Legend and WWE Part Ways

(Brock Lesnar manager and promoter Paul Heyman)

Tajiri has announced on his Twitter that he will no longer be working with WWE and that he is heading back to Japan. The Japanese Buzzsaw was a member of the 205 Live roster and was also being featured on WWE’s RAW Cruiserweight Division.

Tajiri injured his knee in a match in January when working with the NXT Roster. The former WWE Tag Team Champion stated that WWE considered it too risky to clear him to compete at age 46. Tajiri was only able to work one match on 205 Live during his 4 month run with WWE this year.

Tajiri was a familiar returning face in last year’s Cruiserweight Classic, got as far as the second round of the tournament before losing to Gran Metalik who was a finalist in the tournament. Tajiri thanked WWE, Triple H and his former tag team partner William Regal for the opportunity to return to the US and work for the company again.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
