After news broke that AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson were on their way to WWE, the next obvious question was "When will we see them debut and where?" For Styles, that was answered this past Sunday at the Royal Rumble and with three matches so far this week, he's officially in the WWE mix.
Wednesday night, we got our answer as to when we'll see first Nakamura under his new wrestling umbrella: NXT TakeOver in Dallas, TX, during Wrestlemania weekend.
During the NXT tapings in Orlando, FL, general manager William Regal played a video for the crowd announcing that the former NJPW Champion's first appearance will be at the sold-out TakeOver event on Friday, April 1st on WWE Network. Unfortunately, the video hasn't been released as of this writing. However, at the same Wednesday tapings, fans learned of his opponent for that show. If you want to be spoiled, here you go.
Dave Meltzer & Bryan Alvarez will discuss this and more on tonight's Wrestling Observer Radio for subscribers.
