• Backstage News On Shinsuke Nakamura’s “Cancer” Line On Last Week’s RAW

SmackDown Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura showed up on last week’s RAW to face off against RAW Tag Team Champions The Street Profits. Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins won the match.

Before the match, a pre-recorded promo of Cesaro and Nakamura aired in which Nakamura said:

“If they want smoke, they will get cancer.”

Immediately after that, the camera went back to showing what was happening in the ring, during which Michael Cole repeated an altered version of the line.

He said:

“Cesaro and Shin saying if they want smoke, they’re gonna get some here tonight.”

WrestlingNewsco is reporting that this line wasn’t supposed to be said by Nakamura, but due to backstage chaos that day, WWE officials forgot to change Nakamura’s promo and Nakamura was recorded saying the cancer line.
