The long wait for information regarding Shinsuke Nakamura's return to the WWE has come to an end. It has been revealed that Nakamura will be making his return to WWE television next week, after being absent from WWE programming since the November 11 episode of "SmackDown," during which Santos Escobar defeated him in the first round of the "SmackDown" World Cup tournament.
The declaration was made during Friday night's "SmackDown," albeit no subtleties have been shared in regards to whether he will take part in a match on his return. It's fascinating to take note of that Nakamura has not been missing from TV since November and has not partaken in a live occasion since January 22.
On that date, he defeated Imperium by teaming up with Braun Strowman and Madcap Moss.
Nakamura's WWE Achievements
In January 2016, Shinsuke Nakamura joined WWE as a member of "NXT," where he quickly established himself and won the "NXT" Championship twice before being promoted to the main roster a little over a year later.
All through his seven or more years with the organization, Nakamura has encountered impressive achievement, securing titles like the WWE Intercontinental Title, US Title (two times), and the "SmackDown" Label Group Title, which he won close by Cesaro (presently known as Claudio Castagnoli in AEW).
Nakamura has achieved a great deal, but he has yet to win the WWE's most prestigious award. In 2018, he won the men's Illustrious Thunder match at the end of the day lost to then-WWE Champion A.J. Styles at WrestleMania 34. One of Nakamura's most significant matches in recent years took place outside of the WWE, which was a surprising turn of events.
On January 1, he contended in the headliner of Star Wrestling NOAH's The New Year 2023 occasion, where he went head to head against The Incomparable Muta, a WWE Hall of Famer. In one of the final singles matches of The Great Muta's illustrious career, Nakamura won.
As expectation works for Nakamura's re-visitation of WWE TV, questions stay about what the future holds for him upon his rebound. His return is anticipated to bring new challenges and rivalries, or new opportunities for championship glory, by his fans.
Notwithstanding what lies ahead for Shinsuke Nakamura, his re-visitation of the WWE will produce fervor and keep watchers as eager and anxious as ever.
