We reported earlier today here on eWrestlingNews.com that Shinsuke Nakamura finished up with New Japan Pro Wrestling yesterday (Saturday), working his final match and vacating the IWGP Intercontinental title as he’s headed to the United States to perform with WWE NXT.
Nakamura is set to fly to the United States and arrive at the WWE Performance Center later this week.
WWE confirmed just last week that Nakamura was coming to NXT. Nakamura will begin training and handle logistical matters with regards to his signing with WWE. The company wants him to “learn the WWE style” and become one of the faces of NXT before he’s called up to the main roster.
