Fastlane Main Event CHANGED – SmackDown Live Round-Up 2/13/18

Shinsuke Nakamura Absent Again

WWE has done a fairly shoddy job of keeping Shinsuke Nakamura in the public eye since his Royal Rumble win. Nakamura was again missing from in-ring competition on the broadcast, as WWE attempts to fill time before the WrestleMania promotion fully kicks in by concentrating on Fastlane.

Nakamura had his WWE career defining moment at WrestleMania, but he has barely been seen since.

Nakamura is spinning his wheels until then. Any program he could be involved in would be fairly meaningless when he has a WrestleMania title shot imminent, so WWE has opted to just have him do nothing instead. A shame, as it feels like he is losing momentum each week rather than building on his Rumble success, but perhaps an understandable decision.
