Shinsuke Nakamura: Bio
Prepare yourselves: Shinsuke Nakamura, The King of Strong Style, has come to SmackDown LIVE.
A 14-year veteran of the squared circle, Nakamura has been a top star for New Japan Pro Wrestling since 2002. He employs a hard-hitting style in the ring, incorporating blistering strikes with submission holds. The crown jewel of his arsenal is a devastating knee strike, which has felled many opponents.
Nakamura’s smashmouth offense, along with an unusual but magnetic charisma, has earned him the moniker “The King of Strong Style.” In New Japan, Nakamura was a three-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion — a title held by the likes of WWE Hall of Famer Antonio Inoki, Vader, The Great Muta and AJ Styles — and is the youngest competitor to earn that honor, winning it for the first time at 23. In recent years, he focused on bringing prestige to the IWGP Intercontinental Championship, a newer title within the Japanese promotion.
During his career, Nakamura has battled some of the best grapplers in the world, including Styles, Finn Bálor, Kevin Owens and Hideo Itami. And after tearing his way through WWE NXT and winning the NXT Championship, WWE's RockStar immediately excelled under the bright lights of SmackDown LIVE, scoring monumental victories over the likes of John Cena, Randy Orton and Dolph Ziggler to take WWE by storm!
Can anyone hit hard enough to slow down The King of Strong Style? Perhaps ... but you'll have to be fast enough to hit him at all.
