As we commented in the last days here in SUPERLUCHAS, last week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown featured a somewhat baffling stellar.
Along with the strange victory of Adam Pearce of the Gauntlet Match that places him as a challenger to Roman Reigns in the Royal Rumble for the Universal Championship (which, however, aims to be a distraction maneuver from WWE) We witness a return of Shinsuke Nakamura to the technical side, through a brilliant performance in which he got rid of three rivals and only a joint beating of Reigns and Jey Uso prevented him from being the number one contender to the top scepter of the blue brand.
► He’s not just any Japanese
Nakamura’s performance that seems made many realize that the “King of Strong Style” was still thereAfter a couple of years lost in the positions of the middle poster and almost seen as a mere competitor of pairs with Cesaro.
And we do not know if Nakamura will retaliate and will soon seek to be granted the starting opportunity that in theory he was aiming to win. But AJ Styles, old acquaintance of the former NXT Champion, thinks this one can overthrow Reigns. Here are his words when asked in the latest issue of The Bump.
Listen, he’s more than capable of doing what it takes to be a Universal Champion. I know him, and I know him well. The guy can get it. There is no question that this guy is legit. He’s not just any guy from Japan. It is more than that. It’s Shinsuke Nakamura. He’s amazing and he’s always been amazing everywhere he’s been, so like I said, he’s more than capable of being a Universal Champion in WWE. ”
