Shinsuke Nakamura is officially a member of WWE’s main roster and (specifically) Smackdown Live. As a result, there are a ton of incredible matches for him in his future. We thought that we would list the top 5 Shinsuke Nakamura matches that we want to see. Note: We only included opponents from Smackdown Live.
Honorable Mention – Shinsuke Nakamura vs Sami Zayn.
This match receives the title of honorable mention because we have already seen it happen in WWE (NXT Takeover: Dallas).
Their match in Dallas was fantastic and one of the matches of the year for 2016 (in our opinion at least). I think many fans would like to see it happen again based on their chemistry with one another.
Not sure if it will happen again, but I don’t think too many fans would complain if it did.
5) Shinsuke Nakamura vs Baron Corbin.
Baron Corbin is slowly progressing into one of the top heels in WWE today. It is clear that WWE is very high on him and see him as one of their big stars of the future.
I think a match between Corbin and Nakamura could be a lot of fun. It fits based on the traditional heel and babyface dynamic. It would also be great for the career of Corbin moving forward to have worked with someone as talented as Nakamura.
As for the actual match, it could be a hard-hitting clash between two guys that like to fight.
This match takes the number 5 spot on our list because I want to see it happen but maybe not for another year or so as Corbin continues to improve.
