If SmackDown can recover his pull and return to overtake Raw, Shinsuke Nakamura is one of the best tricks , since his debut after WrestleMania 33, is perhaps the one that raises more applause from the respectable every Tuesday night. And next week, he will live his most important match in WWE, when he takes on John Cena to determine the next challenger to the WWE Championship of Jinder Mahal .
During the recent Steve Austin podcast , The Steve Austin Show, “The Texas Rattlesnake” spoke about various WWE issues with guest of that episode, Jim Ross . Precisely, one of the central themes revolved around the figure of Nakamura and his becoming a fight. Ross expressed in the first term his desire to see a duel Nakamura Vs. AJ Styles under the big focus of WrestleMania :
“I think Shinsuke Nakamura, we have not seen the best of him , and I think AJ Styles may be the best worker I’ve seen in years. He’s probably the best worker in the world right now . One could feel something in the stands during WWE Money in the Bank with Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ. Fans who have followed their careers know they have a great story . And have seen, I have seen, have one of the best fighting I’ve seen with Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ . We have not seen that yet in Shinsuke, but this WrestleMania fight would be a great wrestling match. “
Austin completely agrees with Ross’s argument :
“I know Styles is going to make the best of Shinsuke because I do not think, considering what we’ve seen, that we’ve witnessed the best of Shinsuke in WWE. I’m sure you’ll get the best of this kind. I am sure they are great friends for a long time or whenever. But from what I know of AJ, if Shinsuke is going to break his ass working with someone, it’s going to be with Styles . “
But the juiciest words came when Austin criticized the creative bookeo about Nakamura , who according to legend, are not getting the best of Japanese:
“He debuted there at WrestleMania 32, NXT, with Sami Zayn , a huge bout. Enormous combat! Much credit for Sami Zayn and Shinsuke, but here is ‘The King of the Recio Style’ and suddenly, he goes in and goes to work with Dolph (Ziggler) and the ‘King of Hard Style’ takes a long time to finish Dolph . Do you understand where I’m going with this gimmick? It’s a complicated bookeo. What’s the plan? You have this guy, who is one of those talents that does not show up every day. Is special. Come in and treat him like he’s a regular guy . “
