Nakamura is the current IWGP Intercontinental Champion in New Japan but his current contract with the company ends in January. According to a report from Wrestling Inc, WWE are fully aware of this and could make an offer to the 35-year-old.

The King

Nakamura is considered to be one of the best wrestlers in the world and is well known as the King of Strong Style.

In fact, Nakamura is such a big star and held in such high regard by both fans and experts that he was inducted into the Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame in 2015, whilst winning Wrestler of the Year and the Most Charismatic award in 2014.

Nakamura is defending his title at Wrestle Kingdom 10 on January 4th, main eventing the show against former Ring of Honor star A.J Styles.

It would be fantastic to see Nakamura in WWE or NXT, but you always worry that the WWE's creative team would completely screw up his character - as they are prone to with a lot of foreign stars.

Anyway, here's a video of Nakamura facing another potential future WWE signing in Zack Sabre Jr. Enjoy!
