Fans of Shinsuke Nakamura may need to wait a while longer until he is called up to the main roster because The Wrestling Observer newsletter reports that there are no plans to move him up. The situation is the same as it was with Bayley. They needed her to be one of their flagship stars for live events so they held off on her main roster debut.
Nakamura is the top babyface on the NXT side so he is not going anywhere anytime soon. He is scheduled to defend the NXT Championship at Takeover: Toronto on 11/19. It looks like Bobby Roode is being groomed for an eventual title shot so it looks like a Roode vs. Nakamura match will happen within the next few months, possibly at the NXT Takeover before WrestleMania.
Nakamura teamed up with No Wa Jose at Wednesday night’s live event to take on Samoa Joe and Austin Aries. For those that missed it, Aries was injured during the match. Click here for more details.
