• Reason Behind Major Heel Turn At WrestleMania 34 Revealed
As we saw at WrestleMania 34, Shinsuke Nakamura turned heel and attacked AJ Styles after losing in a WWE Championship match once again.
According to DirtySheets.Net, the outcome for the WWE Championship match (original outcome was for Nakamura to capture the WWE Championship) was changed on the day of the show because of the in-ring return of Daniel Bryan.
WWE is planning to do Styles vs. Nakamura, Nakamura vs. Bryan and Bryan vs. Styles in the post-WrestleMania 34 season and Vince McMahon doesn’t want so many babyface vs. babyface feuds as the traditional “babyface vs. heel” feuds have drawn more money.
So Nakamura was turned heel and now we’ll only get one babyface vs. babyface program (Styles vs. Bryan) instead of three.
Speaking of Styles & Nakamura, below is what WWE posted regarding their feud ahead of tonight’s SmackDown Live:

What reasoning will WWE’s Rockstar have for his heinous actions? And how will Styles respond?”
