    Posted: 28/January/2016 at 06:52
WWE made it official earlier tonight, during the last round of NXT TV tapings prior to NXT Takeover: Dallas, that Shinsuke Nakamura would make his debut at NXT Takeover: Dallas when he'll be facing Sami Zayn:

Yes, the rumors are true. Shinsuke Nakamura is coming to WWE NXT.

At Wednesday night’s NXT taping at Full Sail University in Orlando, Fla., a video announcing the impending arrival of the Japanese standout played for the live crowd, sending shockwaves through the arena and, moments later, the social media world.

Nakamura, a 14-year veteran of the squared circle, has been a leading star in the New Japan promotion since 2002. Renowned for his striking and submission ability, as well as his unorthodox charisma, Nakamura’s devastating Bomaye knee strike has felled many opponents and his smash mouth style has earned him the nickname The King of Strong Style. A three-time IWGP Champion — the same once title held by the likes of Vader, The Great Muta and AJ Styles — Nakamura is the youngest competitor to win that championship, capturing it for the first time at 23. He has taken on a who’s who of the best grapplers in the world in his career, facing the likes of Finn Bálor, Kevin Owens, Hideo Itami, WWE Performance Center Head Coach Matt Bloom and The Beast Incarnate himself, Brock Lesnar.

Rumors of Nakamura coming to WWE first started in early January, along with gossip about AJ Styles and Bullet Club members Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows returning to America. Reports about Styles became truth during the 2016 Royal Rumble Match when The Phenomenal One entered at No. 3. Now, The King of Strong Style has decreed that he will be stepping between the yellow ropes in the not-so-distant future.

What does Shinsuke Nakamura have planned for NXT and The Superstars of Tomorrow? Find out by tuning into NXT, every Wednesday at 8/7 C, only on WWE Network!

Zayn huh? That's a shame. It'll be a great match, but I was hoping for Zayn Balor.

Wanted Nakamura vs Itami.

Forget about Itami. Complications from his shoulder surgery. Far from a return.

Guess Nakamura is more of a replacement than an addition to, huh?

I think Nakamura in NXT is just temporary. Just giving him time to adjust to the WWE style before they move him up to the main roster.

Still, Nakamura vs Zayn will absolutely epic. YEAOH!

It really is a shame to see this guy say goodbye to NXT. I really wonder if he will see the success on the main roster he saw in NXT.

That said, his goodbye promo was actually quite good as far as content is concerned. His accent is so thick, man, I just don't know. But he also got just about the best send off I have seen of any NXT performer.

If he can continue to perfect his English and get fluent and without much of an accent, I think there is no limit to how far he can go. Multi time wwe champion, hall of fame inductee, any and all of it. If people can't understand him though... I don't know.

Maybe he/Nakaumura needs a mouth piece, and thats what the piece of shit Heyman does better than anybody else isnt it.

I can just see the 'My client... Shins'ke... etc..', this would be a good idea actually.

I would shy away from that simply because Nakamura is a babyface. Heyman is purely a heel's manager, much like Bobby Heenan.

Ok but I still like  the idea of some sort of manager helping Nakamura, and no it doesnt have to be a piece of shit like Heyman of course. (and hopefully Ive made it clear what I think about the likes of Heyman & Lesnar on here!)
