It was originally reported that there was no backstage heat on the fluke incident that saw Nakamura drop John Cena on his neck during their match on last week’s episode of SmackDown Live. That may not exactly be the case anymore, as it’s now being reported that Vince McMahon was not happy with the spot.
According to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Vince was reportedly ‘furious’ with Nakamura over the botched exploder suplex spot.
“Nakamura did not escape the wrath of McMahon, who has come to depend on Cena as the face of his company for the past decade,” reported Barrasso.
He continued, “Despite McMahon’s anger, which was more in defense of Cena than it was an indictment of Nakamura, he has not lost faith in the Japanese star. If Nakamura makes another mistake on a grand stage, then McMahon will have an entirely different opinion of Nakamura.”
