Shinsuke Nakamura regains NXT Championship from Samoa Joe in Osaka, Japan
December 3, 2016
OSAKA, JAPAN — Back and forth they go.
Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Samoa Joe for the NXT Championship in Osaka, Japan, yesterday. NXT’s official Instagram broke the story, revealing an image of The King of Strong Style holding the championship, to now become only the second two-time NXT Champion in history (the other, of course, being Samoa Joe).
Samoa Joe defeated Nakamura for the championship several weeks ago at NXT TakeOver: Toronto in a brutal and controversial contest, but Nakamura was able to shift momentum back in his favor and take back the title on his home soil.
