Triple H updates medical status of Hideo Itami & Sami Zayn for WWE NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable

Haitch is holding his usual pre-live event media rounds for his baby, WWE NXT in advance of TakeOver: Unstoppable tomorrow night (Wednesday, May 20, 2015).

We'll update with more items from today's conference call, and again tomorrow provided he does his usual day-of Twitter Q & A.

The big news items out of the call however are that Sami Zayn has been medically cleared and will face Kevin Owens in tomorrow's main event. This could still be more angle than match, but at least Sami is in good enough shape to take some bumps. Maybe even the six-plus powerbombs the champ says he has for him.

Hideo Itami, however, is not competing as scheduled in the triple threat match to determine the #1 contender to Owen's crown. Hunter said he will be "represented", but not wrestling.

Could Itami's representation be the way somewhat like Sesugh Uhaa or even a Samoan named Joe gets introduced to NXT?

Stay tuned, Cagesiders.
