WWE have officially announced the signing of Shinsuke Nakamura.
The former three-time IWGP Heavyweight champion will compete in NXT, making his in-ring debut at the NXT Takeover: Dallas show on April 1.
Said WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque of the signing;
“Talent is the lifeblood of our company, and the signing of Shinsuke Nakamura further demonstrates NXT’s commitment to bringing in the best talent from all over the world. His explosive style will make an immediate impact to an already dynamic NXT men’s division.”
Nakamura’s arrival was first rumoured back in January, with WWE commenting on the speculation. His signing was considered to be a matter of when, not if.
