Former WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura spoke to Sports Illustrated about various topics including how WWE has several underrated talents under contract such as Tye Dillinger, The Colons, The New Day, The Bludgeon Brothers and Shelton Benjamin.
This is where he noted that he can choose so many people as they have so much ability but can’t show everything on TV. He thinks that everyone has a great ability to wrestle, and you can see that at the live events.
“Tye Dillinger, Shelton Benjamin, Primo and Epico, the Bludgeon Brothers, the New Day, they’re all underrated.”
It’s no secret that his contract with the WWE will expire this year but seemed to indicate that he wasn’t planning to leave the company and make a return to New Japan Pro Wrestling where he was a top star for years. Instead, he stated in this interview that he wants to re-establish himself in the WWE world title picture in 2019.
It’s likely that he’ll get a rematch against Rusev for the United States Title in the near future as potentially early as the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event on Sunday, January 27, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field.
