Shinsuke Nakamura, who has been rumored for months now to make main roster debut, has been added to the upcoming UK NXT Tour.

When WWE sent out the promotional work last week for the tour, Nakamara was noticeably absent. This led to speculation that he could be making his main roster debut anytime now, presumably after WrestleMania.
This change could mean a couple of things. WWE could still be planning on having him work the main roster but also work NXT events to help sell tickets. This has previously been done in the past with other NXT Superstars that were called up to the main roster. It could also indicate that plans for his imminent main roster debut could be put on hold. WWE often changes their plans and many factors play into those decisions – injuries, storyline, timing, etc.
