Shinsuke Nakamura has graduated to the main roster, and now looks to be a part of Smackdown’s roster. Since he is on the main roster, he has a whole bunch of fresh faces to fight. So who will he fight? Right now nothing is set in stone, but here are 3 bold predictions for his first opponents.
3. The Miz
Miz is such a great guy to work with, for a whole bunch of reasons. He’s a safe worker, so there’s less chance of injury. The dude has more than enough mic skills for two people, so he can help carry the mic work. His in-ring style is also not super impressive or flashy, meaning his opponents will look better in the ring with him. After all, Miz was one of the first opponents of AJ Styles, and it really allowed Styles to shine. Miz is a great choice for a first feud.
Since English isn’t Nakamura’s first language, many are worried about how he will handle himself on the microphone. If he’s feuding with Miz, Miz can do all the talking. He can run his mouth all he wants, and all Shinsuke has to do is show up and kick his teeth in. It’d be a great way to show everyone that, hey, maybe this guy is a big deal. Nakamura will look like a beast against the Miz, and since everyone wants to see the Miz get what’s coming to him, everyone will love Nakamura.
