Doesnít have to be personal. Just as SCU vs Cima and OWE/SH isnít personal. A showcase match to show off a big signing and a big match for Cody. Simple as that.
I really canít wait to be wrong about this to see who it really is, just for a good laugh. That being said Nakamura has a unique look and it seems to fit that picture.
There are very few names to match the hype they are building around Codyís opponent....with that hair. Punk, Batista, Dustin, MJF, and Marty donít have the hair of the man in that pic. And nobody independent or in Japan even that Brandy would know(or be asked to perform like she knew) has the hair or wears a red jacket of the person in that pic. And Brandy, as I said, gives the response of essentially of how are going to make this happen?
The case against my guess would be that AEW would have to be mighty sure Nakamura would be leaving WWE to start throwing out hints. Which even so doesnít mean the guess is entirely wrong.
Another argument is that itís only mid feb, and would they really drag out the mystery until Nakamuraís contract expires, prob in April? And even with that I still say it looks like Nakamura
People are guessing with names already signed to AEW. Why? Scurll is part of ROH and will most like leave for AEW, but by DON.? And they are already having fun with Scurll on being the Elite. With Cody saying heís dead. So heís still very much part of the fun.
The Doc series is hyping it as someone on the outside. Cody is getting a call. Heíll call them back.
Brandy scoffs at the pic. ďHow are you going to make this happen?Ē
