Shinsuke Nakamura would like to challenge Roman Reigns

Two of the most important characters of the Friday Night Smackdown blue roster are certainly the Universal champion, Roman Reigns, Tribal Chief of the company and driver of the entire Friday night show of the company and Shinsuke Nakamura, Intercontinental champion of the same roster, who already in the past they have had some squabbles and challenges in the rings of the McMahon-owned company.

In recent months, Roman Reigns has been practically always in the spotlight of the company, while instead Nakamura has only been used in flashes in great storylines by the company, with his fairly subdued reign with the secondary title of Smackdown, which does not seem to want to take off properly, taking the Japanese career to the highest level of the company.

In the last period many, including Kurt Angle, would have shouted at the federation, that Nakamura deserves better, with the Japanese of the company that despite having won a Royal Rumble and several WWE secondary titles, has never reached the level of Top Superstar, despite having the skills.

Shinsuke Nakamura opens up on Roman Reigns

In his latest interview with Sports Illustrated, Shinsuke Nakamura wanted to tackle a somewhat thorny speech with fans and insiders, namely his rise in the Olympus of the great WWE wrestlers, saying: "Roman Reigns has real responsibility for WWE and professional wrestling and has responsibility for his Bloodline and the best of professional wrestlers.

He is one of the best in the world. But I need to have a WWE world title on my side. I have to prove that I'm better than him. Roman has this fighting spirit. I want to fight him more and that also includes Rick Boogs vs Paul Heyman." Although Shinsuke Nakamura has for now at his side the secondary title of the blue show, the one he aims to get really high in WWE is the belt currently alongside Roman Reigns, definitely more prestigious than the Intercontinental title, albeit younger.

During that time, he won three matches against both Daniel Bryan and Kevin Owens, and two matches against Baron Corbin, Finn Balor, and Jey Uso. He also defeated Braun Strowman, Brock Lesnar, Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Edge, John Cena, Montez Ford, Rey Mysterio, and Robert Roode.

As a singles competitor, Roman Reigns also has an impressive record in triple threat matches over the last two years. The SmackDown star’s most notable triple threat win came at WrestleMania 37 when he pinned Daniel Bryan and Edge at the same time.
