Shinsuke Nakamura update – will he get to keep his name while in WWE?

WWE has posted footage of Shinsuke Nakamura on their website and YouTube. There are comments from names like AJ Styles, Kevin Owens and Finn Balor. The video includes footage of Nakamura meeting Vince McMahon and Triple H for the first time at WWE headquarters in Stamford, CT.

For those that have asked about Nakamura and a possible name change in WWE, well, it looks like he will be keeping his name. He told the Japanese media that his request when he signed with WWE was to keep his name. WWE will be working on new gear for him. One little-known fact about Nakamura is that his English is pretty good so he won’t be needing a translator and that should help him get acclimated to WWE. He will be spending some time in NXT. I know that sounds bad but in this case, it’s a good thing because that time will allow him to get familiar with WWE’s way of doing things (promos, playing to the cameras, etc). He is not expected to be in NXT for too long.
