WWE has a lot of things going on SmackDown, and one Superstar is gearing up for their return to the blue brand. That being said, please be warned that there is a spoiler in this article.

Shinsuke Nakamura has been absent from WWE television for far too long. He was permitted to have a match against the Great Muta, but he hasn’t been around SmackDown. That will change this week.

Fightful Select reports that Shinsuke Nakamura is slated to start a program with Karrion Kross on SmackDown. It seems that they will turn it into an angle of some kind.

As rumored, Shinsuke Nakamura is scheduled to start a program with Karrion Kross on Friday’s Smackdown. WWE had a Nakamura tarot card produced for it.


Shinsuke Nakamura and Karrion Kross are both former NXT Champions, but neither have been given a top spot in WWE just yet. Vince McMahon actually fired Kross during the pandemic, but Triple H brought him back into the fold.

We will have to see what WWE does to book Shinsuke Nakamura. Triple H loves both Nakamura and Karrion Kross, so this feud could see some fantastic action. Then again, you never know what will happen with Vince McMahon around to throw his two cents in whenever he likes.

What’s your take on this plan for SmackDown tonight? Do you think Shinsuke Nakamura will win his return to SmackDown? Sound off in the comments!
