Is Nakamura Making His Main Roster Debut Tonight on SmackDown?
We are on the Road to WrestleMania, which means anything is possible. And according to a lot of the dirt sheets online, the WWE could be making some big moves ahead of the Biggest Show of the Year.
Insiders are reporting that WWE officials have soured on the idea of pitting Shane McMahon against AJ Styles at Mania, which leaves AJ without an opponent on the show. They are also reporting that Officials are considering calling up Shinsuke Nakamura from NXT. Which is a BIG damn deal.
For those that don't watch wrestling outside of WWE, last year at Wrestle Kingdom for New Japan Pro Wrestling, Nakamura and AJ squared off against each other in what many believe was the match of the year in 2016.
And to add fuel to the Nakamura fire, Shinsuke was apparently backstage at Raw last night, posing for pictures with TJ Perkins. So, do we see the King of Strong Style debut on SmackDown Live tonight? I guess we'll find out in a few hours. But if WWE does book AJ v Nakamura at the Showcase of the Immortals, the rest of the roster is going to have to step up to avoid being blown away.
