WWE SmackDown brought a big show to Portland this week, but they revealed that next week’s episode will see the return of a king. After all, the King of Strong Style hasn’t been seen on WWE television for a bit.
Shinsuke Nakamura was permitted by WWE to go to Japan and wrestle The Great Muta in one of his final matches. That was an amazing thing for WWE to allow Shinsuke Nakamura to do, but he will get back to work next week.
Michael Cole was happy to announce that Shinsuke Nakamura will be on next week’s episode of WWE SmackDown for his big return. It was not noted what Nakamura will be doing, but the former NXT Champion will be back next week.
Also, WWE booked LA Knight vs Xavier Woods for next week. This decision was made after the two had a bit of a confrontation backstage this week. LA Knight was not happy about his WrestleMania snub, and Woods didn’t want to hear it.
We’ll have to see how it all turns out for SmackDown next week. In the meantime, you can check out the lineup below.
