Shinsuke Nakamura’s First Main Roster Feud, AJ Styles Earns Future Title Shot, Lana

Apr 12, 2017 - by Marc Middleton

– Shinsuke Nakamura appeared on last night’s WWE SmackDown after making his debut last week. It appears his first main roster feud will be with Dolph Ziggler. The two worked an in-ring segment last night that saw Nakamura drop Ziggler after blocking a superkick. Video from the segment is below.

– AJ Styles is the new #1 contender to the WWE United States Title after defeating Baron Corbin and Sami Zayn in a Triple Threat on this week’s SmackDown in Boston. AJ has earned a future shot at the winner of Chris Jericho vs. current champion Kevin Owens at the May 30th Payback pay-per-view.

– As noted, it was announced on the “Superstar Shakeup” edition of WWE SmackDown that Rusev and Lana are coming to the blue brand but it appears they may be working separately as they were announced at different times. WWE aired a vignette for Lana’s blue brand debut and it appears she will be a part of the women’s division. We’ve noted how she’s been working WWE NXT live events for several months now. Below is a photo from last night’s vignette:
