NXT makes Austin Aries vs. Shinsuke Nakamura official for June 8 TakeOver

WWE Network

Shinsuke Nakamura delivered a "Match of the Year" candidate in his first WWE match when he defeated Sami Zayn at TakeOver: Dallas in March.

So he and his next opponent have their work cut out for them.

Tonight, we officially learned who will get the honor and challenge of trying to top that performance along with the King of Strong Style.  Considering he calls himself the Greatest Man That Ever Lived, he's probably not too daunted by the prospect.

Austin Aries was in the midst of a promo predicting that he'd be NXT champ before long, when he was interrupted by his tag partner from last week's episode. Nakamura also plans to be follow Samoa Joe as the top man in the brand.

So William Regal had a great idea. Well, actually, Full Sail Live had the idea first, and the General Manager agreed. Now, Aries vs. Nakamura joins Finn Balor vs. Joe and American Alpha vs. The Revival on the as yet still unsubtitled show, coming our way in two weeks on June 8.

How do you think they'll do?
