Shinsuke Nakamura is a superstar. He was one long before being signed by the WWE and he remains one to this day and for the rest of his life.
The man just has "it". Whatever the it factor is, a combination of talent, athleticism and charisma, Nakamura has it in droves and many on the WWE roster should be jealous of the total package that is Shinsuke.
Well, Nakamura returned to Japan last night as part of the WWE's tour, and as you can probably respect, the reaction of his native fans was absolutely sublime. Scroll down to watch the video.

Nakamura faced off against Kevin Owens at Sumo Hall in Tokyo and the fans in attendance went absolutely crazy for him during his entrance to the ring.
From singing along with his entrance music - that has no words - to the huge YeaOh! when he bent backwards by the ropes, the fans were in top form at Sumo Hall. The Full Sail crowd should take some notes.
Luckily for them, they all got to see Nakamura come away with the victory as he defeated Owens with the Kinshasa, previously known as the Bomaye knee in New Japan.
Nakamura is currently killing it down in NXT as he gets a bit more used to life in America, working the WWE way, and getting his English speaking at the best it can be.
There is no doubt that he is a talented wrestler, arguably the best in the world, and it is only a matter of time before he is on the main roster. But, for the meantime, we are just going to have to enjoy him in the Developmental territory.
Rumours have been abounding that he could be a shock draft pick on July 19 as SmackDown goes live, which would be incredible. Let's just wait and see.
