Shinsuke Nakamura hasn’t been used in the best way according to many fans. He is currently in a tag team with Rusev, but some would rather him do much more.
We previously reported that Nakamura has checked out of his job with WWE, however, that doesn’t mean he will be leaving even with AEW around. When Dave Meltzer was recently asked about Nakamura’s status following his contract expiration he said that Shinsuke is staying.
Perhaps if he signs a new contract with the company they will have more confidence to push him once again. If anything, they could at least spotlight his partnership with Rusev more.
Shinsuke Nakamura relocated his entire family to Florida when they moved from Japan. Therefore, it was unlikely he would uproot them again. It is still interesting that he is sticking around despite all of the Cody gifs in his general direction.
