During Friday night’s episode of WWE SmackDown, Shinsuke Nakamura appeared to be on his way to becoming a babyface again. Nakamura came out to his old theme music for his match with Jey Uso. His original “The Rising Sun” theme song played instead of the “Shadows of the Setting Sun” theme that he had been using during his heel run.
Nakamura wound up defeating Jey Uso after he used the Kinshasa.
Nakamura turned heel at WrestleMania 34, when he lost a WWE Championship match to AJ Styles and then hit him with a low-blow.
