The wrestling world has been in a state of rapture over the past couple of days.

News broke earlier this week that several top stars in New Japan Pro Wrestling had handed in their notices after the promotion's Wrestle Kingdom 10 event - NJPW's version of WrestleMania - and were rumored to be signing with the WWE.

Well, one of those stars - Shinsuke Nakamura - has reportedly confirmed in an interview today that he is heading to the WWE.

Japan’s Tokyo Sports publication revealed the news, in which Nakamura stated he will be leaving New Japan later in January when his contract eventually runs out.

According to sescoops, Nakamura explained that he is looking for a new challenge and hopes to reach “new heights” with WWE’s global platform.

Nakamura is legitimately one of the best wrestlers on the entire planet, and his ability - combined with his other-worldly charisma - should see him be a hit with WWE fans, who truly haven't seen anything like him. 

The 35-year-old is reportedly coming to the WWE alongside 'The Phenomenal One' AJ Styles, as well as Doc Gallows and 'Machine Gun' Karl Anderson. There's a potential for some of them to team up with the current NXT Champion Finn Balor to recreate The Bullet Club, a popular heel stable in NJPW.
