Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Bray Wyatt is scheduled for the WWE shows in Japan that take place in July. I’m sure Bray is thrilled because he’s been a fan of Nakamura for years before most fans took notice.
Nakamura was interviewed recently by the Japanese media. He talked about how life has changed for him in WWE because he is now able to see the world when they go on tour. When asked about the rumored match with John Cena in Hawaii, he said that if the rumors are true then it would be a really big opportunity for him. I spoke with someone in WWE and they confirmed that the card that got out a couple of weeks ago was fake so it doesn’t look like he’ll be facing Cena in Hawaii.
The shows in Japan will take place at Tokyo’s Sumo Hall. There is still no word on if any of these shows will air as WWE Network specials. If they do have plans to air one of these shows then I wouldn’t expect an announcement until after the next NXT TakeOver special.
Nakamura’s merchandise continues to sell well and, as you can see below, WWE released new merchandise last week for Nakamura.
