Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Akira Tozawa has teased leaving the WWE through his social media account.

The Japanese superstar on this week's Raw faced off and lost against the "Modern Day Wrestling God" Baron Corbin.

Post-match, Tozawa took to Twitter and posted an image of his Ninja ring gear laid out on his bed with the caption "Thank you".

This has led to speculation among fans regarding Tozawa's future in the company as he was rarely seen on TV under Triple H.

Some fans believe that this is him leaving the Ninja gimmick to come back fresh. Tozawa has been used as a comedy act under Vince McMahon.

Tozawa is a 16-time 24x7 champion in the WWE and he is famous for his 24x7 title feud with R-Truth on Raw.
