Shinsuke Nakamura got AJ Styles to slap him and it was brilliant

Shinsuke Nakamura being a huge jerk is the best version of Shinsuke Nakamura. In what could have been just another ordinary contact signing tonight (Jun. 5) on SmackDown, instead turned into a master class in mind games taught by Nakamura.

While sitting next to GM Paige and across from WWE champion AJ Styles, Nakamura did all the little things perfectly. Suit game, yawning, general disinterest, looking away while Styles spoke to him and not being able to find a pen to sign on the dotted line were all evil genius tactics by the King of Strong Style.


What a beautiful slap from Styles and brilliant move by Nakamura.

Is AJ Styles getting too emotional and will he drop the title to Shinsuke Nakamura at Money in the Bank on Jun. 17?
