Not too long ago, Shinsuke Nakamura lost the NXT Championship to Samoa Joe, sparking speculation that the Japanese star could be on his way to the main roster.

However, those rumours have now been officially put to bed after Nakamura reclaimed the title during an NXT show in his home country of Japan.

Although WWE fans may be disappointed at the fact Nakamura won't be coming to either Monday Night Raw or SmackDown LIVE anytime soon, it does mean one thing, Samoa Joe might be.

Just like Nakamura, Joe has also been heavily linked with a promotion to the main roster, only to be denied it due to others going up ahead of him.

However, after losing the NXT Championship, now could be the perfect time for the former TNA star to leave the developmental show and make a name for himself on the main roster.

With the NXT show being in Japan, it was heavily expected that Nakamura would defeat Joe and reclaim the gold, and that's exactly what he did.

Although WWE didn't air the show, they did announce on their official social media pages that a new champion had been crowned.

You can watch the video of Nakamura winning the title below.

After the event, Nakamura took to his official Twitter account to post about the match, and he was quick to thank his home crowd for their support.

In a simple, yet, appropriate tweet, Nakamura said: 'Finished #nxtosaka #nxt thank you!!'

Only five words needed to express his feelings after becoming the NXT Champion once again, and the message was accompanied with a picture of him holding the gold.

So it won't be the main roster for Nakamura anytime soon, but it could be for Samoa Joe.
