• Storyline Update On The WWE Title Picture
Below is what WWE posted regarding the WWE Title picture ahead of tonight’s SmackDown Live:
Will Shinsuke Nakamura continue to antagonize AJ Styles?
“Shinsuke Nakamura has unveiled a new side of his eccentric persona in the days following his shocking attack on WWE Champion AJ Styles at WrestleMania. The Rockstar taunted his opponent with a disingenuous apology for the low blow on The Grandest Stage of Them All, then ruined the fantasy match between The Phenomenal One and Daniel Bryan, clobbering The “Yes!” Man with a thunderous Kinshasa and hitting Styles with another heinous low blow.
Will Nakamura continue to torment Styles when he least expects it, or will The Phenomenal One get the payback he’s looking for?”
