Former WWE and ECW Star Set to Return to WWE in 2017

Yoshihiro Tajiri took to his Twitter account (as shown below) to announce that he will be returning to WWE in 2017.  Tajiri had made a brief return to the company to work in the Cruiserweight Classic show earlier this year.  He noted that his final Japan date will be December 27, so he should be making his debut sometime after the New Year.

NXT is currently touring Japan, and Tajiri noted that he spoke with William Regal during the trip and got the okay from him to make the announcement on Twitter.

Bill Says:  Because Tajiri competed in the CWC, I would assume the company will plug him in on the new 205 Live show that airs on Tuesdays.  Either way, I think he offers something to the roster based on his experiences and am looking forward to his return.
