WWE Announce Signing of Shinsuke Nakamura

The worst kept secret in wrestling has finally been put in the open.

Late Sunday night, just as Fastlane was coming to an end, WWE announced via WWE.com they have officially signed Shinsuke Nakamura after a month and a half of speculation.

“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,” says NXT head Triple H of the signing.

Nakamura is expected to report to the Performance Center on a full-time basis in the next few weeks, where he will likely begin preparations for his WWE debut match against Sami Zayn at NXT Takeover: Dallas during Wrestlemania weekend.
