Shinsuke Nakamura Talks AJ Style Feud, Entrance Music, WWE 2K19

Published

on

WWE superstar Shinsuke Nakamura recently sat down and did an interview with TV Insider and talked about a wide range of things including his feud with AJ Styles, which included at WrestleMania 34, his entrance to the ring, and his character in WWE 2K19.

“The motion character actor did a really good job. For the entrance, everything comes from the feeling from that day,” Nakamura said of his character in the video game.

“Sometimes I dance for concentration. I dance to release my nervousness. Everything has meaning. Using the fingers before a match. Most fighters are nervous before they go out there. Nervousness makes the body tight. I don’t like that. I want to fight with a normal feeling. That’s why I move the fingers, shoulders, everything. I try to move like spaghetti.”

Nakamura then discussed his clashes with Styles, whom he feuded with in New Japan Pro Wrestling.

“I wanted to do more for the first time on WWE. I think I could show myself more against AJ. But still, I liked getting the chance against AJ,” Nakamura said of Styles. “After WrestleMania I became the heel, but I didn’t show everything. Just a little bit.”

“It was awesome because when I hit the low blow at WrestleMania, all the Japanese fans were shocked. The people in the arena were loud. They were like, ‘Yeah!’”

“You have a good side and bad side, real side,” he said. “Then I put that on in the ring. My character, my personality in the ring came from heel stuff.”

Nakamura is happy to be with WWE and his decision to relocate in order to join the company.

“Moving to the United States is a huge decision. There are wrestlers in Japan. I think they think they can move to WWE, but it’s not so easy. There is the language. I can speak English a bit, but I’m trying.

“I wanted to challenge myself. I wanted to enjoy my life and challenge myself. That’s why I came here. I came with my family. It’s a lot, so it’s not just wrestling. I’m proud to be here.

Bobby Lashley Discusses Hurt Business Reunion

Bobby Lashley

Bobby Lashley hopes that there will be a day that the popular Hurt Business faction will reunite, and reignited their dominant impact during WWE Monday Night RAW that was front and center during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lashley, MVP, Shelton Benjamin, and Cedric Alexander, all formed the faction, and at one point they held a lot of gold, when Lashley was WWE Champion and Alexander & Benjamin were Raw Tag Team Champions.

The faction has since split up, with Lashley and MVP branching off as a solo act, but MVP eventually split from Lashley and is now managing Omos.

Lashley is still holding out hope.

“You know what, I was thinking about what could happen to actually bring us together, and I thought about this the other day. I was like, if [MVP] made Omos too dangerous, where he couldn’t contain him anymore, and Omos turned on him, he would need somebody to help him. There’s only one person that can beat Omos. Then, I may need some help, and if I need some help, you have Cedric, you have Shelton, you have, we can take him down, and then we’re babyfaces again. They’ll love us. Anything can happen,” Bobby Lashley said, during an interview with Ryan Satin on the Out of Character Podcast (H/T to Fightful)

John Laurinaitis

WWE has quietly let go of former WWE head of talent relations John Laurinaitis in the aftermath of public accusations levied at Laurinaitis and former WWE Vince McMahon, according to PWInsider’s Mike Johnson.

“We are told that the termination happened within the last week or so and it was, for obvious reasons, being kept very quiet beyond a very small circle. We are working to confirm when the departure took place but every source, to a person, made it clear Laurinaitis was let go.”

Allegations came to light earlier this summer when the Wall Street Journal published an article alleging WWE board members are “investigating a secret $3 million settlement that longtime chief executive Vince McMahon agreed to pay to a departing employee with whom he allegedly had an affair, according to documents and people familiar with the board inquiry.”

It was alleged that McMahon “gave her like a toy” to Laurinaitis.

The WWE Board of Director’s investigation is ongoing.
