Former ECW Original Yoshihiro Tajiri announced this week that his contract with WWE has expired.
Tajiri returned to WWE back in 2016 to be part of the first-annual WWE Cruiserweight Classic Tournament. The longtime WWE Superstar ended up sticking around in WWE and was placed on the 205 Live roster.
After he was cleared to return from a knee injury, which he sustained soon after making his return, Tajiri was relocated by the company to their Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, where he was featured as a coach.
Tajiri’s departure from WWE was not a surprise to anyone in the company, as he announced back in April that he would be leaving the company once his contract expired.
