Final week’s episode of SmackDown featured a ten man tag crew match that ended with King Corbin pinning Shinsuke Nakamura after hitting him with the Finish of Days. That led to a singles match between the 2 superstars on tonight’s (Might 14) episode of SmackDown.
Despite the fact that neither wrestler is booked in a match this Sunday, Might 16, at WrestleMania Backlash, WWE put in an effort in the direction of making this match really feel vital. Given Nakamura’s “King of Sturdy Model” moniker, the struggle was billed because the battle of two kings. Each superstars even received full entrances with inset promos to associate with it.
The match itself didn’t reside as much as that hype, with Nakamura getting pinned in a short time. However Shinsuke wasn’t going to simply fade away from relevance. He received again within the ring and nailed Corbin with a Kinshasa. Then he took the king’s crown and dramatically adorned his head with it.
Nakamura now possesses the crown and appears utterly infatuated with himself as he wears it. He isn’t formally the brand new king of WWE but, however the King of Sturdy Model does look fairly rattling good sporting that crown.
