Shinsuke Nakamura's WrestleMania heel turn was one of the best executed in recent memory.
The King of Strong Style came up short in a grueling WWE Championship match against AJ Styles on the grandest stage of them all - and afterward, shocked every fan in attendance.
He went down on one knee to present Styles his championship, before swiftly hitting The Phenomenal One with a huge low blow and kicking him out of the ring.
Fast forward a month or so and Nakamura now has new entrance music and a new outlook on his career.
STYLES VS NAKAMURA
He's gone from a fan favourite who always intended to fight fairly to someone that despises AJ and his title reign, leading to some brilliant moments on TV between the two.
More low blows followed WrestleMania as the pair continued their feud, with Styles clinging onto his championship in two more rematches.
Things are going to come to a head at Money in the Bank next month, where Styles and Nakamura are going to have one last fight for the title.
Expect this time, the challenger may just have a slight advantage after winning a match on SmackDown Live that allowed him to pick the last man standing stipulation.
One of the best things to come from Nakamura's heel turn is his new sarcastic catchphrase. Whenever asked a challenging question, the Japanese superstar simply replies "sorry, no speak English".
It's the perfect heel response to anything he doesn't like - and it's one that has really got under AJ's skin in recent weeks.
TROLLED BY THE KING OF STRONG STYLE
What makes it even better, is that Nakamura appears to be maintaining kayfabe outside of the ring too, judging by a recent image posted on social media.
One wrestling fan (@aj_autograph) posted on Twitter earlier this week that he met Nakamura at a signing event. His post also had pictures of his WWE Pop! Vinyl figure signed by the man himself.
Hilariously, Nakamura scribbled the words "no speak English", before signing the side.
Fair play. It's great to see Nakamura maintaining kayfabe outside the ring - as a lot of wrestlers nowadays don't do so. Perhaps he was meant to be a true heel all along.
