Sami Zayn & Shinsuke Nakamura announce a new partnership?

At least Shinsuke Nakamura now has something to do.

Since winning the Intercontinental title on the Extreme Rules pre-show, Nakamura has had one of the quietest WWE championship runs in recent memory. Tonight (Aug. 20) on SmackDown, Nakamura formed a new alliance with Sami Zayn.

One night after Zayn got bounced from the King of the Ring tournament in embarrassing fashion, the Canadian took to Miz TV to announce his next career move.

Zayn and Nakamura’s first move as a team? Beat the ever living crap out of The Miz.

In this new partnership Zayn will serve as Nakamura’s voice while the Intercontinental Champion can simply focus on the action between the ropes.

This new friendship came out of nowhere. Is the alliance between Sami Zayn and Shinsuke Nakamura good for both men’s careers?
