Shinsuke Nakamura says someone was upset with him after botched spot in match with John Cena



Shinsuke Nakamura nearly landed himself in hot water last year during his match with John Cena. The Japanese star went head-to-head with "The Leader Of The Cenation" on an episode of SmackDown Live last year in August. A number one contender's position was on the line in the bout. Unfortunately during the match, Nakamura accidentally dropped Cena on his head with a botched move.

Nakamura recently did an interview with The Gorilla Position prior to SummerSlam and discussed the botch. He revealed that someone backstage - who he couldn't name - was very upset with him for the incident. Fortunately, Cena was able to step in and take some of the heat off of the former New Japan Pro Wrestling star:

"Uh - I don't know if I can tell that or not," Nakamura said. "Some people were upset backstage - not John Cena - but someone. They were so pissed off at me, 'Why did you do that?!' I thought "Oh my career is finished today." But everybody came to support me, even John Cena, 'it's not his fault, it's my fault' Yeah, what a good man.

"So not everybody has a chance to wrestle with John Cena now. So I felt good in the ring with John Cena. Also, I never was the villain in the ring, so if I had the chance I want to wrestle against him again. Maybe we can create something better than before."
