Newest member of the Bullet Club. Their Junior division is the best in the World by far.

I guess there wasn't as much interest from WWE as he thought. But that means he's gone from Impact now and could instead show up in ROH.

Either that or he feels that by making a name for himself in the Bullet Club will bring more money than being "that Japanese guy that was in TNA".  I could be dead wrong but I don't feel that Styles, Anderson/Gallows, or Devitt gets the money or good spot that they received in WWE if not for what they did in Japan over the two year period that somebody (probably HHH) was focusing on the Japan scene.

Well there's no doubt about that.  In fact, Anderson & Gallows are only in WWE because Styles was negotiating with them as a package deal with both TNA and WWE.  It helps to have a friend that loyal.  And Devitt of course is ONLY known for what he did in NJPW, he had no name in the U.S.

Is it possible the E just has too much talent on their rosters at the moment and chose not to bring him in or is that not their style? I have no idea who this guy is so I don’t have an opinion either way.

Impact is advertising "the return of Taiji Ishimori" at their Slammiversary PPV on July 22, which would be really interesting considering that he is now the newest member of the Bullet Club in NJPW. I don't know what kind of deal Ishimori could have with Impact independent of NOAH and NJPW that would allow him to continue to work there. Josh Matthews did briefly put over Ishimori for being in BC during a voice-over for a match that was taped ages ago, but I didn't think much of it at the time since Impact references every company, including WWE, since the new management has taken over.
