Shinsuke Nakamura def. Aiden English
Nakamura, who looked sharp as ever, was brutally brilliant, though he suffered a setback when Rusev (who was flanking English at ringside) dropped WWE’s Rockstar behind the official’s back with a stinging kick. However, even those dirty tactics weren’t enough, as Nakamura rallied and finished English off with a thunderous Kinshasa for the win.
After the victory, The King of Strong Style began to celebrate on his way up the ramp, but before he could exit, he was greeted by John Cena, who was arriving for his high-stakes match against WWE Champion AJ Styles. Cena and Shinsuke stared one another down, with both pointing to the WrestleMania sign, signaling what everyone already knew: Everyone’s sights are set on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
