Back in late 2015 and early 2016, the rumors started swirling around about AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura coming to the WWE. They just had their big-time matchup at the Wrestle Kingdom 10. It was a great battle that propelled the WWE to look into their situation and realize that they would be big signings for the company.
AJ Styles made his main roster debut at the Royal Rumble as WWE has seen that there is no need for him to go down to NXT. He is just that experienced and that good. On the other hand, Shinsuke Nakamura did go to the NXT. It’s not because he is not as good as AJ but because he needed to learn how WWE likes something to be done. Styles has always talked about the different things that he had to adjust to since coming to the biggest wrestling company in the world.
A year after he made his NXT debut, Nakamura showed up to the same brand that AJ Styles was on. People talked about them facing each other as soon as the rumors of them signing with the WWE.
When Nakamura showed up on the blue brand, the fans wanted to see these two in an epic battle even more. Now, this might be the Wrestlemania match as we had a nice tease for it.
During WWE’s tour in Europe, the two stars shared a ring and they were shown in a friendly talk at that moment. The crowd started cheering for both, telling them that they want to see the clash of these two at the grandest stage of them all.
WWE is for sure at least considering this. They are two of the biggest stars in the company and them battling for the WWE championship in one of the biggest matches at Mania would be something that the fans would gladly pay for.
