These two superstars have crossed paths a number of times since Nakamura’s debut on SmackDown Live and they are rumoured to face each other at the upcoming SmackDown PPV Backlash.
Since Backlash is less than 2 weeks ago, this segment is most likely to set up the match between the two WWE Stars and it won’t be a surprise if we see them exchanging some blows.
Other matches that are set for the event include the WWE Championship match between Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal, United Status Championship match between AJ Styles and Kevin Owens and The Usos vs. Breezango for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
It’s worth noticing that WWE has held off the in ring debut of Nakamura on the main roster purposefully and has already announced that he will be having his first match on the main roster at Backlash.
Since WWE has been building anticipation for Shinsuke’s debut, fans are hoping that his first bout will be a memorable one and Ziggler certainly looks to be a right opponent, who is capable of matching the performance of the former NXT Champion.
