Smackdown Live is treating Nakamura like a special attraction that he really is. There is no need to use him each and every week as he is a true star and you need to save him for your big shows. This guy will have his debut match in ten days at Backlash pay per view in Chicago with Dolph Ziggler. Considering how good both of these guys are and the fact that crowd in Chicago are going to make a lot of noise for Shinsuke, this is going to be an amazing duel and great debut for Nakamura.
But, even though he still isn’t done with his first feud, we have a great clue about who is he going to be feuding with next. As you most likely now, WWE is doing live shows each and every week, and they need to put up the card in advance so they can attract the fans to buy the tickets and come to the show. That is why there are already posters for Smackdown’s live show at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, CA on July 26th and one of the matches that are headlining that show is Kevin Owens battling Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE title.
AJ Styles is challenging for the title right now. After that feud is done, a lot of people expect Styles to go for the WWE Championship at the Summerslam pay per view. That leaves Owens open for new challengers. It looks like Nakamura is going to be the one facing Kevin for the title at the biggest show of the summer, making this the next feud for The Artist known as Shinsuke Nakamura.
