Thanks to some untimely injuries, NXT is going to be taking a hit at the top of their roster. Hideo Itami is the latest person to be placed on the injured reserve list. He sustained a shoulder injury, and the initial prognosis is that he will be required to miss at least 6 to 8 months of action in order to proper rehabilitate the damaged body part. Itami was in the midst of a push, and he was scheduled to be promoted to the main roster in the near future.

Back in December, Crimson had a tryout with WWE, and many were under the impression that he had a pretty good chance because he had a tremendous physique and a military background. However, we are now in February, and there has been no word from management about their interest in getting him to sign a contract. The 29 year old former TNA star was not even mentioned as a candidate for the upcoming season of Tough Enough.

Since management had no choice but to focus on securing a new television deal for Impact Wrestling, TNA allowed several of their performers to become free agents because contracts were not being negotiated during that period of time. One of those performers is Crimson, and there's a good chance that he might not be back. He's currently down in Florida, doing a one week tryout for WWE. He has a good look, experience and is a former military personnel, so his chances are good.
