Thanks to a couple of injuries and main roster promotions, the NXT roster took a bit of a hit this year. Some good news is on the way, however. Hideo Itami is set to make his return much sooner than expected. Initially, the star from Japan was supposed to sit out a shoulder injury until the early part of 2016. Now, he might be back as soon as the end of October. At the very least, he should be back before 2015 ends.
