Nakamura's finisher is even more impressive in slow-motion (and explains the red mark on Sami Zayn's face)

The King of Strong Style most definitely arrived last night.

There's much to praise about Shinsuke Nakamura's NXT debut. His entrance theme. His opponent. The Dallas crowd.

But only one of those things is available for you to watch in slow motion, directly below these words:

The BomaYe (now Kinshasa - more on that change later today) is impressive enough full speed, but this is a great angle to slow it down, see the shin connect while Nakamura extends through it - and then watch how it sends Zayn crashing down to the mat, seemingly back-of-the-head first.

Cue up "The Rising Sun" and watch this in a loop for three minutes!
