- While speaking with Yahoo Japan, Nakamura talked about his first year with WWE and was asked if he’d be apart of this year’s WrestleMania event. Nakamura would then throw his name in the hat as a potential opponent for AJ Styles at this year’s event.
“If the (Wrestlemania) opportunity presented itself, I want to do it. AJ doesn’t have an opponent yet, I’d like to fill that spot,” said the former NXT Champion.”
He continued, “I’ve achieved a lot this year, but there’s much more to do. I want to make more strides over the next year and show my true ability.”
For those not aware, Nakamura and Styles have history. The two battled at Wrestle Kingdom 10 for New Japan Pro Wrestling, which saw Nakamura get the victory over Styles.
Regarding a match between the two this year at Mania, as of a few weeks ago the plan was for Styles to face Shane McMahon. Those plans could always change between now and then, as they often do within WWE.
