Tajiri announced on Twitter that he will be finishing up his commitments in Japan this month and will be back with WWE full time early next year.

As noted, Tajiri teamed with Akira Tozawa in a losing effort to NXT Tag Team Champions Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa at this past Saturday's NXT live event in Osaka. He was also a part of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic this past fall.

Below is Tajiri's post, which translates to:

I gave you OK because I got OK from Regal GM yesterday 's NXT Osaka performance "I can announce it from tomorrow". I will return to WWE early next year. 12/27 Kanemura Retirement box office will be the last game in Japan, and acupuncture activity will end in Japan this month. Thank you very much, everyone for 10 years! It is!
