Shinsuke Nakamura’s NXT debut date and opponent revealed



Earlier this month, following NJPW’s biggest event of the year, industry shattering news broke of 4 major players moving from Japan to WWE/NXT in the immediate future.

2-time IWGP champion A.J. Styles already made the move to WWE where he’d make his debut at the Royal Rumble this past Sunday. The latest on his former Bullet Club stablemates, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows, is that they’ll be coming up to the main roster in March. So where does that leave Shinsuke Nakamura? That question was answered earlier tonight at a NXT taping in Orlando by NXT GM William Regal.

Nakamura’s debut opponent at ‘NXT TakeOver: Dallas’ will be former NXT champion Sami Zayn. The event takes place during WrestleMania weekend on April 1st.

SPOILER ALERT: Here’s how the NXT TakeOver: Dallas card looks after tonight’s tapings.

• Austin Aries vs. Baron Corbin

• Apollo Crews vs. Elias Samson

• Sami Zayn vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

• NXT Tag Team Championship: Dash and Dawson (c) vs. American Alpha (Jordan and Gable)

• NXT Women’s Championship: Bayley (c) vs. Asuka

• NXT Championship: Finn Balor (c) vs. Samoa Joe
