Shinsuke Nakamura makes his main roster debut on the SmackDown after WrestleMania

Raise your hand if you had “interrupts a Miz segment” in the “what is the first thing Shinsuke Nakamura does on the WWE main roster?” pool.

He didn’t actually have a confrontation with the Hollywood A-Lister, although with Miz’s rival John Cena off on another Hollywood hiatus, that could be his opening feud. In fact, other than being played in by Lee England, Jr., posing and dancing a bit in the ring while the Orlando crowd lost its $#!+, Nakamura didn’t do a whole lot in his main roster debut.

But the King of Strong Style, former IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental champion and two-time NXT titleholder is working on television for the biggest wrestling company in the world - right where he belongs.

Will AJ Styles stay on Tuesday nights for the former New Japan standouts to re-visit their brief rivalry for that promotion? Could Nak challenge current World titleholder Randy Orton - another dream match Shinsuke’s spoken of?

We’ll find out later. For now, crank up “Rising Sun” and dream.
