Following his victory over WWE Champion AJ Styles last week, Shinsuke Nakamura earned the right to decide the stipulation for his title bout against The Phenomenal One at WWE Money in the Bank.
Nakamura first played coy with Styles, suggesting that they were going to have a pillow fight, but then, getting very serious, Nakamura boldly stated that he knew that he was better than Styles. AJ retorted by reminding Shinsuke that he “can’t beat him when it counts,” and the two began brawling.
The fight spilled into the WWE Universe, and The Phenomenal One began to tee up a Phenomenal Forearm off the barricade, but Nakamura stopped the attack with a steel chair, connecting flush with Styles’ body in mid-air. The King of Strong Style then continued the assault, tossing Styles onto the announce table with a front suplex and nailing him with a Kinshasa on the outside.
After that, as Styles laid motionless, Nakamura began to count to 10, then announced that at WWE Money in the Bank, the two would compete in a Last Man Standing Match for the WWE Championship.
Now we posted a blog covering what the WWE fans wanted this stipulation to be and we warned that a last man standing match gave the company a “no contest” way out of the match.
While we will cover our predictions nearer the time, we would like this on record now, that if they do, once more and yet again fall the match to a no contest, this will be from what we can work out, the third time they’ve done this to the fans.
The WWE Universe pay good money to see a WWE pay per view, the least the company can do is give them an outright winner!
