5 matches for Shinsuke Nakamura at Summerslam

As August draws near, it's time for us to start thinking about Summerslam. For Nakamura, there are 5 matches he should be anticipating.

Who will the Artist face?

Ever since appearing on the first SmackDown post-Wrestlemania, the WWE Universe has been left in awe of the artist known as Shinsuke Nakamura. Week after week, his music leaves the crowd singing and harmonising throughout the show.

He’s soon become the focal point of the show and his rise will certainly be unprecedented. Right now he’s engaged in a hot-cold feud with Dolph Ziggler, a feud that looks set to culminate in a match at WWE Backlash.

For Nakamura to grow into the household name we know he can be, he needs the right opponents to bring the best out of him. As summer quickly approaches, it’s time for the WWE to start planting seeds for the biggest pay-per-view of the summer, Summerslam.

Here are 5 matches for Shinsuke Nakamura at Summerslam’17.


#5 Sami Zayn

After the classic they had back in NXT, there’s no reason as to why this match can’t happen at a WWE pay-per-view. Sami Zayn and Shinsuke Nakamura are two exquisite wrestlers that can perform in any type of wrestling match in the world. They’re exceptional and deserve to be on the second biggest PPV of the year stealing the whole show.

At this moment in time, Sami Zayn is a bit lost in the shuffle on SmackDownLive. Many wanted to him to say goodbye to RAW but life is not that much better on Tuesday nights. The Canadian is constantly losing matches with no real storyline direction.

However, a slow build to a showdown with Nakamura at Summerslam could be everything the underdog from the underground needs for a revival.
