Hideo Itami Came To WWE To Take Back Go To Sleep?

We recapped a dot com article earlier on Thursday where Sami Zayn, Hideo Itami, Adrian Neville and Kevin Steen talked about being the leaders of their generation. There were a lot of great lines in the piece but there's one I thought that I would highlight. It came when Itami talked about his desire to leave Japan for WWE.

Below is an excerpt:

ZAYN: Why did you choose to leave Japan for WWE?

ITAMI: I wanted more. I wanted to be famous. I wanted to prove to myself.

STEEN: Did you always want to come to WWE? Because things are different in Japan.

ITAMI: When I started, I didn’t think about WWE, but my dream became bigger and bigger.

STEEN: Maybe you also came to WWE to take back the Go to Sleep. (Laughter.)

ITAMI: I hope! (Laughter.)

The moment in the dot com piece can be read at this link.

As most of you know, Go to Sleep was the finisher of CM Punk, who left WWE back in January.

Itami's in-ring WWE debut will air on Thursday night's episode of WWE NXT exclusively on the WWE Network.
