NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura recently spoke with Scott Fishman of Channel Guide Magazine about various topics. During the interview, Nakamura was asked about facing Brock Lesnar again. For those who don’t know, Lesnar and Nakamura wrestled each other in NJPW in the mid-2000s.
“If I get a chance, I would be up for that,” Nakamura said. “My body would need to be ready because he is tough. Ouch.”
Nakamura won the NXT Title back at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II against Samoa Joe. Nakamura explained that he knows Joe very well.
“I know Samoa Joe coming up maybe at 22,” Nakamura said. “I know his technique. He has good technique. He has this rare technique that is strong with not only wrestling but MMA fighting. I also know similar techniques, so it’s nice to face him in NXT. He is a big challenge.”
Nakamura will be featured in WWE 2K17, which marks the first time that he will be in a WWE video game.
“It’s fantastic,” he said. “I scan, and they did a good job with me. For motion capture, TJ Perkins told me he did my motion capture. He says, ‘So if something slips or is wrong, I’m sorry.’ I also know TJ when he was a teenager. So that’s awesome.”
Nakamura also talked about NXT and more. You can read the entire interview here.
