As you will more than likely know by now, Shinsuke Nakamura won the 2018 Royal Rumble Match.
Nakamura was alongside Roman Reigns in the final two of the Royal Rumble, with the large majority of the WWE Universe behind the Japanese superstar.
Since debuting on the main roster, Nakamura is yet to win a title, with his last title the NXT Championship.
Nakamura announced after he had won the Royal Rumble match, that he would face the WWE Champion at Wrestlemania. The current champion is AJ Styles, although he will face Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens and either Dolph Ziggler or Baron Corbin at Smackdown’s next pay-per-view, Fastlane.
The Nakamura v Styles clash in WWE has been teased a few times, so the majority of the WWE Universe would be unhappy if it didn’t happen at this point.
The two did clash when they both wrestled for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) a few years back.
Had Reigns have won the Rumble match, the WWE Universe wouldn’t have been so happy, as it’s already widely reported that Reigns will face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at Wrestlemania.
Reigns is still meant to be a face, however he is still strongly booed by the majority of the WWE Universe.
Most people would have guessed when it went down to a final two of Nakamura and Reigns, that Reigns was going to win so it is good to see WWE not going down the predictable route.
The WWE Universe likes Nakamura and if he does face Styles many will be expecting a great match, to deliver to the hype it will receive.
Other than the obvious people that people would have loved too see return, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, etc, I cannot think of anybody better than Nakamura to fight for the WWE Title at Wrestlemania.
Question – Who do you think should have won the Men’s Royal Rumble match?
