Re: Shinsuke Nakamura Reportedly Staying With WWE

He's staying because of his family. He's not going to move them all back to Japan. It's either WWE or AEW.

AEW is still a possibility no matter what Meltzer says. The guy is wrong 85% of the time.

He doesn't care, it's the last few years of his career and he wants to make as much money as he can with as little effort required. I can't blame him, if his body is beat up it makes sense.

Re: Shinsuke Nakamura Reportedly Staying With WWE

It may be just a job to him, but I do not think he's happy with his current position. I mean, he's a jobber in a trashy thrown together Tag Team that just loses all the time.

And if it was just money, the guys running AEW could probably easily pay him a lot more. Not so sure if he would be a draw, though.

Loyal underling to the cute, adorable Pirate Princess Kairi Sane

Re: Shinsuke Nakamura Reportedly Staying With WWE

Outside of his debut, Shinsuke has been a major disappointment to me. Even when he has a "good" match, we have to grade it on a curve and say, "well, it's good for Shin these days". If we really want to see the best of Nakamura, we have to replay the Zayn match a bunch of times or head over to NJPW World.

Given the level of effort/output from Nakamura over the past few years, he's not motivated from an artistic standpoint, it's purely financial. Just come in, do a couple of spots (especially if he's tagging with Rusev, who can carry the load) and get those big bucks.

He either needs to go to AEW, or he needs to do a joint deal with ROH and New Japan.....

Hell Even Impact would be a better choice than WWE at this point.....
Maybe just maybe he doesn't think he's booked into the ground. Maybe just maybe his goal these days isn't to be one of the top focus of a promotion

Re: Shinsuke Nakamura Reportedly Staying With WWE

Didn't we know, or I suppose hear/read, that this was his career twilight wind down gig?

Not really surprising he stayed if that was the case. Similar to Styles he's probably thinking about the long term post in-right aspect of signing.

Re: Shinsuke Nakamura Reportedly Staying With WWE

I really hope they have something decent in the future for Nakamura and Rusev too. Both are wasted talent that I'd rather see pushed than a lot of other guys.

Why would you want your kids to get the worst first world country education on the planet?
