WWE recently made a big mistake with a top WWE superstar at a recent WWE event.

That star is former title contender Shinsuke Nakamura, who is best known for his work in New Japan Pro-Wrestling where he is a former three-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion, five-time IWGP Intercontinental Champion, one-time IWGP Tag Team Champion, and the winner of the 2011 G1 Climax, 2006 G1 Tag League, and 2014 New Japan Cup tournaments.

Before his WWE main roster debut, Nakamura competed in WWE's developmental branch, NXT where he is one of only two wrestlers to have held the NXT Championship on more than one occasion.

WWE held a live event on Wednesday company’s merchandise stand y in Glasgow, Scotland at the SSE Hydro. At the event, the sports entertainment made quite the hiccup while trying to sell some of their items to fans in attendance.

They actually made two big mistakes. The first was trying to say that former NXT Women’s Champion Asuka’s signature mask belonged to Nakamura. The other mistake was spelling Nakamura as ‘Nakmaura’. Below you can see a photo from a fan that attended the live event as well as Asuka’s reaction.

Asuka began her professional wrestling career back in 2004 before beginning to do work for Pro Wrestling Wave in 2008. She also did work for promotions such as Smash, Wrestling New Classic, Reina Joshi Puroresu, and many other promotions.

Asuka finally signed with WWE in 2015 and was sent to developmental in NXT. In April of last year at NXT TakeOver: Dallas Asuka defeated Bayley to win the NXT Women's Championship.

She continued to dominate her opponents in NXT and extended her vicious undefeated streak to over 500 days. She successfully defended her strap against Ember Moon at NXT TakeOver III: Brooklyn. Although, she suffered an injury during the match which forced her to relinquish her title.

This is when the sports entertainment company made the decision to call her up to the main event roster and place her on the flagship show of the company, Monday Night Raw.

She made her main roster debut at the WWE TLC pay-per-view event at the Target Center in Minnesota, Minneapolis on the WWE Network by beating Emma, who is no longer with the company after she was recently released, in a singles match.
