Where is Nakamura?

Royal Rumble winner Shinsuke Nakamura has not wrestled on SmackDown since January 30, which is an astonishingly poor way of keeping him strong and relevant prior to his WrestleMania showdown with AJ Styles.

WWE clearly have no idea what to do with Nakamura in the interim period between Rumble and ‘Mania so have opted to do exactly nothing with him instead. The only mention of him on the entire show was a brief video package, which is frankly not good enough.

Fastlane cannot come quickly enough for Nakamura – or indeed WWE – as once it is out of the way everyone can get to the important business of the Road to WrestleMania. Hopefully, Nakamura’s damaged booking will not have irreparably damaged his buzz.
