At The Biggest Event of The Summer, The Artist Known as Shinsuke Nakamura will look to take his place at the top of the blue brand mountain when he challenges WWE Champion Jinder Mahal on Sunday, Aug. 20.
Following his victory over Randy Orton inside the dreaded Punjabi Prison at WWE Battleground, Mahal returned to SmackDown LIVE demanding to know who his opponent would be at SummerSlam. Enter John Cena, who immediately stepped up to the plate and unleashed a verbal tongue-lashing on The Modern-Day Maharaja. However, just when a title showdown looked to be set in stone, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan emerged to inform the 16-time World Champion that other Superstars were also deserving of an opportunity, especially the charismatic Shinsuke Nakamura.
The following week, The Leader of the Cenation squared off against The King of Strong Style in an intense showdown to see who would have the right to challenge The Modern-Day Maharaja for the WWE Title. With the two Superstars going toe-to-toe in the heart-stopping bout, Baron Corbin suddenly interfered. While The Lone Wolf seemed intent on handing Nakamura the defeat, his plan backfired, and he inadvertently helped his nemesis pick up an incredible victory over Cena.
Though WWE’s Rockstar has indeed earned himself an opportunity to capture WWE’s top title, his challenge is just beginning. The Modern-Day Maharaja is about as tough as they come since returning to WWE, especially with The Singh Brothers ready to do just about anything to keep the title around his waist.
Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura
we have to have Nakamura win the title, it has to happen, I am a big fan of his and I don’t care for a prediction result here although I will add it to my results none the less
