• Triple H Trying To Bring Shinsuke Nakamura To NXT, NXT Match At WrestleMania 36
After Finn Balor returned to NXT, it looks like another former NXT Champion could be making his return to Wednesday nights – Shinsuke Nakamura.
According to Slice Wrestling, Triple H is attempting to convince Vince McMahon to put Nakamura back on NXT and “The Game” feels Nakamura could help NXT in their ratings war against AEW Dynamite on Wednesday nights.
Nakamura moving to NXT could be a good decision for him as he lives in Florida (the site of NXT). Nakamura is currently the Intercontinental Champion on SmackDown.
Speaking of NXT, there have also been talks of doing an NXT match at WrestleMania 36 next year.
This would allow NXT to get more mainstream exposure, which will eventually help in the ratings war against AEW Dynamite.
