Nakamura to Debut on Smackdown Tonight?


As we reported before WrestleMania, NXT Star Shinsuke Nakamura is to be called up to the main WWE roster soon.

Bryan Alvarez reported on today’s Wrestling Observer Live that Nakamura is expected to debut with the SmackDown Live brand. Prior to Mania there was a report by Wrestling Observer Newsletter which noted that Vince McMahon was high on Nakamura and wanted him on the Raw brand, as that’s where big stars are established but Triple H felt Nakamura would work better on SmackDown Live.

It would appear, Triple H won the argument and Nakamura will be called up to replace John Cena, who will be taking a lot more time out to work on other projects and establish himself in Hollywood.

It’s entirely possible Nakamura could make his debut on this week’s SmackDown Live.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
