This week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown featured a gauntlet match in order to determine the #1 contender for Roman Reign’s WWE Universal Championship.
Shinsuke Nakamura impressed many with his performance in the match after defeating Superstars such as Rey Mysterio, King Corbin and Daniel Bryan. After that, Adam Pearce came out.
However, before Pearce made his way to the ring, Roman Reigns and Jey Uso viciously beat down Nakamura. After the brutal attack, Pearce pinned Nakamura to become the #1 contender.
After Smackdown concluded, Nakamura’s partner Cesaro took to Twitter and threatened Roman Reigns and Jey Uso.
Cesaro warned Reigns and Uso to not mess with his friend Shinsuke Nakamura.
Don’t mess with my friends…
After what transpired on this week’s Smackdown, perhaps WWE is planning on turning Shinsuke Nakamura into a babyface.
