A couple of weeks ago, Hit Row was attacked by a debuting Legado Del Fantasma who appeared along with Zelina Vega instead of Elektra Lopez. This kick-started a rivalry between these two factions. Recently, these two teams faced off in a tag team match that resulted in Legado Del Fantasma defeating Hit Row.
Last week, it was announced that Legado Del Fantasma will take on Hit Row and a mystery partner. Since the news broke, many fans were speculating as to who this mystery partner could be. However, PW Insider has reported that Hit Row’s mystery partner is Shinsuke Nakamura.
“For those who have asked about Hit Row’s mystery partner tonight against Legado Del Fantasma, PWInsider.com has confirmed the current plan is for Shinsuke Nakamura to team with Hit Row,” via PWInsider.
Shinsuke Nakamura recently returned to NXT as Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo’s mystery opponent. However, his last match on SmackDown took place on the August 12th edition of the show, where he faced Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship in a losing effort. He has spent the last few weeks in Japan and even attended Antonio Inoki’s memorial.
