Shinsuke Nakamura: I wish I could appear at NJPW’s 50th Anniversary

Last updated

WWE Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura recently discussed wanting to go back to New Japan Pro Wrestling as part of their 50th Anniversary event.

Speaking to Tokyo Sports, the former IWGP Intercontinental Champion revealed that he would like to work with NJPW but via WWE.

‘I want to have a match in front of the fans who are waiting in Japan soon” Nakamura began. “It’s the 50th anniversary of New Japan. Through the company, I really wish I could cooperate. The game is difficult, isn’t it?

“However, if you negotiate seriously, It may be somehow, but now it’s the situation like isolation and border measures. The risk is still high” Nakamura added.

“It would be nice if the situation was calm and there was a TV program that would call me outside the match (laughs)” the former New Japan star concluded.
