Shinsuke Nakamura continues to campaign for a match at WrestleMania 33. During a recent interview with the Orlando Sentinel to promote NXT Takeover: Orlando, Nakamura expressed his desire to compete on pro wrestling’s grandest stage.
“I hope. I hope. I want to go to the next [level]. If I can wrestle at WrestleMania, that’s going to be awesome. I… really… want… WrestleMania.”
When asked if competing at WrestleMania was one of the reasons he came to WWE, Nakamura said:
“Yeah. Yeah. I want to wrestle at the biggest wrestling show on the Earth.”
Shinsuke Nakamura will challenge NXT Champion Bobby Roode at Takeover and will be getting called up to the main roster very soon. It’s rumored that he’ll be joining the RAW brand, which sets up potential matches with the likes of Brock Lesnar, Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman.
