Seth Rollins: Shinsuke Nakamura Is A “Generational Talent”


Due to the Champion vs. Champion format of Survivor Series this weekend, WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins will face United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura on Sunday. This past summer, Rollins actually talked about Nakamura and had some high praise for the Japanese star (via

“Shinsuke’s great, man,” said Rollins in June. “He’s a generational talent. They don’t come along like him very often and he’s a special cat, just a crazy guy to be around. (He’s) just got so much charisma and so much going on for him.”

“I see only great things in his future. I’m happy he’s here in the States and working for us and hopefully sometime in the not-too-distant future we can see a Seth Rollins/Shinsuke Nakamura one-on-one match.”

In a separate interview, Nakamura echoed the same kind words for Rollins:

“He has amazing abilities, he can do everything,” said Nakamura. “I don’t do everything, I always choose like one or two things, three things, in the ring, but he … can do everything. So I love to wrestle like a high-ability guy, so maybe we can make huge chemistry in the ring, I think. I look for that.”
