As noted, NXT star Shinsuke Nakamura spoke with Chris Charlton, author of “Lions Pride,” for a recent interview and named AJ Styles as the man he would like to face at this year’s WrestleMania.
“If the [WrestleMania] opportunity presented itself, I want to do it,” said Nakamura. “AJ [Styles] doesn’t have an opponent yet, I’d like to fill that spot. I’ve achieved a lot this year, but there’s much more to do. I want to make more strides over the next year and show my true ability.”
Styles responded via Twitter today to the NXT star.
“How’s this,” questioned Styles. “Sorry, but I do have a match at Wrestlemania. N fact, I’ll be headlining Wrestlemania after tonight.”
@ShinsukeN how’s this? Sorry, but I do have a match at Wrestlemania. N fact, I’ll be headlining Wrestlemania after tonight.
