There’s been a lot of mumbling in the wrestling rumour mill lately but now things have come to fruition in the most spectacular fashion. Earlier this month Wrestle Kingdom 10 took place, which saw a phenomenal match for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura. Just hours after the event rumours started going around that AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, and a few other New Japan stars had given their notice and accepted offers from WWE.
Not long after, Shinsuke Nakamura vacated his IWGP Intercontinental Championship which further added fuel to the rumours. However, following the historic debut of AJ Styles in WWE, it’s now been confirmed that Shinsuke Nakamura has signed with the WWE and will be performing for their thriving and popular NXT brand.
Shinsuke joins the likes of Asuka and Kenta as part of WWE‘s ever expanding roster of international stars. Shinsuke Nakamura is a huge acquisition for the company, and his planned debut match will take place at the NXT Takeover PPV in Dallas, Texas. His first opponent? None other than the incomparable Sami Zayn who only just returned from injury. Shinsuke Nakamura vs Sami Zayn is quite simply a dream match and a sure fire match of the year contender when it happens… there couldn’t be a bigger debut match for the King of Strong Style.
AJ Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura was dubbed as a dream match at Wrestle Kingdom 10 and it delivered, and with both of them now with WWE the best is yet to come.
