Before leaving the NJPW, Nakamura worked there for 14 years from 2002 to 2016 but in 2016, WWE signed both Shinsuke Nakamura and current WWE champion AJ Styles.

The famous Japanese Superstar made his debut on the NXT brand, whereas Styles made his debut at the Royal Rumble 2016.

Recently, WWE rumor mill was abuzz with the fact that NJPW is interested in resigning the current US champion, Shinsuke Nakamura.

In a recent interview with SkySports, Nakamura himself talked about his future in the WWE and whether he has signed a new contract with NJPW or not.

The heart of the matter

In the interview, Nakamura clearly said that rumors which are saying that his contract with the WWE has expired and the NJPW signed a new contract with him is not true.

Nakamura said that he hasn't made a new contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling and he will probably stay in the WWE in the near future but it all depends on the money.
