WWE wants you to get to know Shinsuke Nakamura

The King of Strong Style is plastered all over WWE's online accounts today, and I don't know what to do with myself.

In addition to the above YouTube video (which I'm betting gets taken down and re-tooled for the line about the Boma-Ye having taken out more people than Polio, but maybe not - I honestly can't tell what's outrageous and what's not these days), he's featured on their Instagram page and all over

So, what are we supposed to do with the next fourteen-or-so days until his debut at TakeOver: Dallas?

Since all signs - like these marketing materials and the trend started by Samoa Joe and continued up through AJ Styles - point to his keeping his name, we can speculate on if the music in the video will be his WWE theme song.

We could fantasy book his NXT career after he faces Sami Zayn in Texas, and speculate on what else he does in WWE over the three years for which he's rumored to have signed.
