Shinsuke Nakamura was a huge star in NJPW before he decided to make his way to WWE. 7 years after his debut, fans feel Nakamura just has not been booked as well as he should have been. Regardless, Nakamura has been back to the fold since last year and now it appears he sent a defiant message about winning a World Title in WWE after RAW this week.

Shinsuke Nakamura finally returned to WWE television last month and was eventually drafted to Monday Night RAW as part of the WWE Draft this year. Nakamura had made it clear he was going after a major title afterwards.

As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, qualifying matches for the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match took place. Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Bronson Reed to qualify for the match, after a hard-fought battle.

While speaking on a WWE Raw Exclusive, Shinsuke Nakamura commented on qualifying for the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Nakamura sent a defiant message, making it clear that he will become a World Champion.


”WWE changed my life a lot. This opportunity, Money in the Bank Ladder Match, it will change my life again. This is the first step to the world championship. I came to WWE to be world champion. I’ve never forgotten that. I will be world champion anyhow, to use Money in the Bank briefcase.”

Ricochet also qualified for the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder match by defeating The Miz. We will have to wait and see whether Shinsuke Nakamura will be able to win the Money In The Bank match and eventually cash it in to become a World Champion.
